Anakia is "sooooo last decade" technology and has some requirements
for everybody that wants to use it (eg. java :-)

If the new CMS can be used, then I'd recommend going with that. It
would be nice to get the community working with that today, as it
should be a good tool to use in the long-term. (Anakia gets to be a
pain for larger sites)

The CMS is newer than that documentation, which may be why it "prefers" anakia.

Please take a look, and I can help with any authz bits or other setup
(just lemme know what I need to do).

IOW, my +1 is for the CMS. If we find that the community doesn't like
it, then we can make another choice for the long-term site.
