Using pelican for serving this blog
For my own blog, I recently deprecated wordpress, in favor of using pelican. The package was recently added to Fedora. It's quite simple and does not require php, mysql, and a memcached running on a webserver.
In the past, the number of attempts to get into this host increased significantly. During Linux-Tag-Oldenburg last year, we had a wordpress installation to serve the schedule. It just failed when more persons tried to edit the same document.
Pelican uses structured text files, which are being processed once to html files. This means, one can use awesome tools like vim and git.
