ShinyCMS is a content management system intended for use by Web designers and Web developers who want to keep a clear distinction between the markup they create and the content their clients can edit. Designers add templates to the CMS, which define page layouts containing editable elements. Users can then build pages by selecting an appropriate template and editing the elements it contains. This approach means that editing content is a simple and safe process, and the site look and feel is kept consistent and professional.
I had to use Python for a project at my last job, and I was left with a severe antipathy toward it... however, as my distance from that unpleasant experience increases, I'm more inclined to think that this is entirely the fault of the GUI toolkit that work made me use, wxPython, rather than anything explicitly wrong with Python itself.
I did deeply resent the enforced layout, but it would be a simple enough thing to adapt to if you put your mind to it... and the OO structure to everything does make development a very pleasant process.
On the whole, I'm a confirmed Perl fan and I'm sure I'll remain so for some time yet... but if I had to use Python again, I don't think I'd be too upset - just as long as I didn't have to use wxPython, which was nasty nasty nasty (IMHO).

I thought it was a Unix software site with an open source bias.

*BSD being a Unix variant, that would be fine...
