Dear all

Recently we are working on a non-profit project that needs an
information system for internal and external communication. I am looking
for an opensource CMS system for this because we surely will add a lot
of customization to it.

Requirements are:

publish news

    better allow comments and RSS feed

knowledge base

    HTML-based, better with comment, rating and must be full-text
    searchable, flexible permission so we can define users who can
    submit questions or new article idea (or stub, using wikipedia term)
    and who can modify, categorize and publish them.

forum integration

    including the possibility to put the hottest topics on the web for
    users to access;

prefer PHP over other programming languages

    we are somewhat professional at PHP.

high quality of program logic / presentation separation

    after it's done a HTML/CSS knowledgeable person will maintain it and
    we try avoid her to have to modify javascript/php code in order to
    achieve different look. Having good logic / presentation separation
    also means it is easier themeable.

ldap integration

    would be fine to have. As we probably integrate new services on it.

Public calendar feature

    for events.

I am looking through directories of existing CMS for evaluation and very
much appreciate help from you if you are already experienced with some
of such products.

Thanks a lot!
