Rails based content management.

Dan,
I will be very interested to hear which one you choose. I've tried out
Goldberg and Beast and both seem cool, but they also seem DEAD?
It's hard to jump on a CMS product that shows no signs of life. I'm
not complaining about the guys that built these, I know they've got to
follow the MONEY, but it's hard to build your dreamhouse on a
questionable foundation.
I've got some interesting ideas in this area, if you'd like to talk
sometime?

FYI, Goldberg is not dead. version 0.2 was release on April 1st or
2nd. Dave is always on the forums answering questions (http://
www.forum.goldberg.240gl.org/). Version 0.2 also has some advancement
in the CMS. I'm not familiar with them because I don't need anything
fancy for my content pages, just text.

Goldberg 0.2 was released 7 days ago. Goldberg is undergoing active
development. If you look at the Rubyforge project you will see that
Goldberg has regular bi-monthly releases.

questionable foundation.

Goldberg is a not-for-profit venture. It is Free (freedom) software.
There is no non-free/commercial version of Goldberg, neither is one
planned. It's produced by a team of software professionals who share
an interest in producing an enterprise-grade application deployment
environment for Rails, but apart from our interest in Goldberg we
don't share any other affiliation.

If anyone is interested in finding out more about Goldberg come visit

One of the things I like about Goldberg is how they maintain
independence between your application and the plugin. You get support
for users, authentication, and permissions to access specific pages
and controller/actions, without having to change your app. If I
understand correctly, as powerful as Goldberg is, that reduces your
risk should you decide to fall back to acts_as_authenticated or some
other plugin(s) in the future. http://goldberg.240gl.org/internals
