Same here :-), hence the problem.

Summarizing, I think there are two ways. Either installing some CMS
system and using only what we need, or writing by hand 10/12 PHP/MySQL
forms. The problem is that both solutions need to be implemented by
somebody that knows the chosen one much better than me, to avoid
wasting 80% of the time in trial and errors.

Again, is somebody can say for sure "Drupal or whatever else can do
all Marco listed, it's just a matter of configuring it, and I know how
to do it" it's OK for me (always if Rodolfo says installation is
feasible, of course).

As far as bandwidth and CPU usage are concerned, I'd say that
realistically, there is still quite some time before we can put a too
heavy load on that CPU. Bandwidth wise, the iso might certainly become
a problem, but mirroring (we can restore savannah's directory, and
Vego also has space) might lessen that burden enough, I hope.

Open to suggestions,
