checked - its using Kupu .. also supports lots of markups like ReST,
wiki markups, etc.

others:
- contents are stored like inside a filesystem (folders, contents)
- contenttype easily done using argoUML, code generated using archgenxml
- templating using TAL (similar to turbogears's KID) - XML valid,
clean, no need to mess with python
- considering its python, might allow greater integration with
python-fedora libraries,  turbogears, and other python libs.
- powerful caching when installed with squid as accellerator combined
with the CacheFu product (CacheFu will invalidate squid cache when
changes occur)
- powerful indexing & searching capability (can index uploaded pdf,
odf, doc, txt, etc)
- and bunch more

Cons:
- require py2.4 ..
- small choice of custom Products (plugins)
- consume quite some RAM

the fedoraunity guys know more i guess ..
