Here are some interesting Joomla blog posts I found during week 45.
Brian Teeman wrote an interesting post about a search project aimed at finding out the use of different CMS types in Europe. Guess which system is no. 1?
Fotis Evangelou has written a post on how to redirect your site RSS feed to FeedBurner, Chris Davenport has a post on what will happen with Joomla development post Joomla 1.6, and as usual there are some posts from Joomla.org.
Enjoy the read and have a great week!

This month a survey by cmscrawler.com of 2,944,914 European web sites has been able to identify the publishing solution used in almost 494,040 of those sites.
Unlike other statistical analysis this was restricted to European TLD (top level domains) and does not limit itself to only testing sites in the top x million based on traffic.

With Joomla 1.6 nearing completion the thoughts of many have been turning to "the next step".
There are two extremes on the scale of viewpoints about how open source projects should be run. At one extreme, we have the "benevolent dictator" approach where a single leader decides, in isolation, what will be incorporated into the codebase and what will not.
At the opposite extreme, we have a project where all decisions are taken in the democratic tradition of a majority vote.
