I do happen to be working on a CMS myself (which I plan to open  
source after my security shakedown), but I don't think it would be  
ready before we would want to deploy. Completely Modular... Access  
control lists... Emphasis on security and usability...  Unfortunately  
the latest version hasn't been tested in a high-traffic environment  
yet. http://www.darcness.org/

I'm not sure why I'm even mentioning this. Oh well. Whatever content  
management system is chosen, I would recommend something in PHP...  
But I guess that's just my personal preference. Drupal looks pretty  
solid.
