Community website: http://www.plone.org - Providers & website using Plone: http://plone.org/support/network

Plone is a free and open source content management system built on top of the Zope application server. In principle, Plone can be used for any kind of website, including blogs, internet sites, webshops and internal websites. It is also well positioned to be used as a document publishing system and groupware collaboration tool. The strengths of Plone are its flexible and adaptable workflow, very good security, extensibility, high usability and flexibility.
Plone is released under the GNU General Public License (GPL) and is designed to be extensible. Major development is conducted periodically during special meetings called Plone Sprints. Additional functionality is added to Plone with Products, which may be distributed through the Plone website or otherwise. The Plone Foundation holds and enforces all copyrights and trademarks. Plone also has legal backing from the council of the Software Freedom Law Center.

Open Source Web Application Framework

Product Website: http://www.djangoproject.com/

Django is an open source web application framework, written in Python, which follows the model-view-controller architectural pattern. It was originally developed to manage several news-oriented sites for The World Company of Lawrence, Kansas, and was released publicly under a BSD license in July 2005. In June 2008 it was announced that a newly formed Django Software Foundation will take care of Django in the future.
Django's primary goal is to ease the creation of complex, database-driven websites. Django emphasizes reusability and "pluggability" of components, rapid development, and the principle of DRY (Don't Repeat Yourself). Python is used throughout, even for configuration and defining of and data models and template tags.
Django also provides an optional administrative CRUD (create, read, update and delete) interface that is generated dynamically through introspection and configured via admin models.
Django is ideally used where a highly customized development effort is required. It does offer some CMS functionality to be used stand-alone or integrated into an existing Django website, via projects like Django CMS and FeinCMS, for example. There is also a capable shopping framework project under development with the Satchmo Project.
The motto of Django is "The Framework for Professionals with Deadlines", and our experience with it confirms that motto.
