For instance, this post is to list (and solicit additions) CMSes that use a version control repository (or at least RCS files) instead of a database:
The first one I’ve found is DaizuCMS
Daizu CMS looks to be a one-man project in the early stages. It doesn’t even have a UI (which may actually be a good thing.)
I thought I saw it in a bullet point, but the way it uses the DB for everything else, I’d guess maybe not. I haven’t had any luck with Midgard. I was able to compile and install, but it chokes on DB population. Something about languages.xml and libmidgard.so.9
I’d also like to link from my blog to the tools wiki and issues.
