It's interesting you bring up WordPress, because I think there are
Fedora folks (and maybe Red Hat folks too) who have prior contact with
people at Automattic.  I do know there are sites out there using
WordPress as a CMS when the required workflow is the right fit.  I've
been using it since 2002 myself and I can see where it would be a good
fit.  It's also already packaged for EPEL and Fedora, actively
maintained, and has a thriving community.
