I 'paid the price' of writing my requirements yet again [there 
is an earlie post to substantially the same effect by me out 
there] in a review outline' of the requirements checklist for 
that and invited a working test case what ... two months ago

 	I would add [with the benefit of time and knowing what is
 	happening in the broader Open Source world] to z00dax'
 	comment, that it should support federated authentication
 	[ldap,OpenID, whatever]; show a low attack surface history at
 	the CVE; be in active maintenance or better, development; be
 	in a language permitting addon extensibility without having to
 	'marry' the darn thing; and permit 'static' top pages to
 	address 'slashdotting'.  Does it integrate well with puppet,
 	mailman, and stock CentOS tools; is it Free and Open Source
 	software using CentOS stock supporting packages?

No test setup yet to review that I can see
