The growth of PHP-based content management systems is a testimony to
the success of the open source movement, which has created a lengthy
list of powerful, user-friendly applications that can be installed by
web site operators with little or no PHP coding experience. Active
support communities for these projects offer templates and mods for
easy customization, and mobilize to deploy fixes for security holes.
Related issue: need to upgrade as security patches come out for
MediaWIki, keep tabs on spoof accounts, etc etc.
