If you're "fighting" with your CMS you're definitely using the wrong 
tool for the job.

They obviously are. It is "learn to use git and how to program php" and 
"try to understand the code you wrote two years ago" vs. "have a look at 
the 5 minute CMS introduction video" for being able to edit the page.

As I already said: we need something that's good at aggregation and can 
do simple cms stuff. I don't say Drupal/Joomla/whatever is the right 
tool, but plain PHP with code + content mixed up is just a pain.

So we'll either end up with an CMS or some php "framework" (maybe just a 
few libs thrown together) to make editing the page rather simple.
I guess the latter one would work, but I doubt it has any real 
advantages over a _simple_ cms+aggregator solution.

"Lets to it with php ourselves" sounds like a NIH-problem to me and will 
become a maintenance-horror in the long run.
