Well, that's certainly self-fulfilling.   

The reason why the number of PostgreSQL websites keeps expanding is partly 
because the main site is pretty useless to the majority of the community 
for sharing information.   I know that I specifically stopped submitting 
stuff to Techdocs because I spend more time doing HTML markup than I did 
writing articles ... and that it was impossible to keeps stuff up to date 
because it's so hard to edit.  And the Brazillian community members I 
talked to aren't interested in creating or utilizing a Brazillian version 
of the main site because it doesn't allow them to share information the 
way their wiki does.

If you and Robert are happy being the sole content providers for 
PostgreSQL.org in perpetuity, then by all means don't use a CMS.   But 
maybe you should recognize what you're doing.
