Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during week 28.
There's a post on how to deploy large-scale websites, an post on an advantage Joomla has over WordPress (just one of many, IMO), as well as a commentary by Jeremy Wilken on the GPL feud going on in WordPress land. I'm happy those times are over for Joomla! ;)
Enjoy your week!

Over the last few months we've been interviewing developers who have worked on widely popular Joomla sites. However, not every successful Joomla developer has sites with a shelf full of awards or 5 million visitors per month.

I've heard a lot of talk lately about whether or not Joomla can handle large-scale websites, or if it's best used for small mom-and-pop sites. I can say emphatically that the answer to that question is that Joomla is not only useful for small mom-and-pop sites, but it can also be used to build it medium and large-scale sites.

When picking an open source solution, it's just as important to consider the community behind the open source project as it is the product itself. Joomla has already gone through these issues (was it a year or two ago?) and clarified how the GPL relates to third-party extensions and enhancements.

The project lead team behind open source content management system, Joomla!, is looking for greater contribution from the wider community on which features make the cut, and which are left for the future.
Joomla! core developer, Andrew Eddie, told Computerworld Australia that, while the project lead team was able to ascertain the main features wanted by its users, until now the community's voice had been somewhat muted.

Where does the GPL's jurisdiction end? Some rather stimulating discussions have risen over the past few days on Twitter and on blogs across the net. Its hard to know who is the protagonist and antagonist, but the main players are Chris Pearson, creator of Thesis (a popular Wordpress theme) and Matt Mullenweg, founder of Wordpress.
