I am evaluating a content management system and I suddenly remembered Zope from my distant past. In the few minutes of searching on Zope related topics, I get the distinct impression that Zope has been abandoned. The few sites I have seen that are running Zope seem to be quite old in terms of content. Even the 'example sites' that you can see from the Zope site (http://zope.org/Resources/ZopePowered) are all pretty ancient.

Thanks for your post. The Joomla and DotNetNuke sites both look promising. Because there is no 'right' answer to this i'll whack up the points to 500 (to share them out) and give it a few days to see if anybody else comes up with some info.

Anybody else got some alternative Open Source systems to mention like these?

About the link I posted, it seems to be a list of PHP based CMS.  There is a CMS called Plone which is based on Zope. Also Zope is not really considered a CMS.
