Brief conclusion: I don't recommend it. Its administration interface is 
confuse, the templating system is hard to learn. I'll not even make the 
comparison with our requirement list.

You can see by yourself at http://demo.ezpublish.no/news_admin (login: admin, 
password: publish).

The next alternative seems much better: Midgard CMS 
(http://www.midgard-project.org/cms/). Looking at the screenshots, it seems 
very user-friendly. And, good news, it's LAMP-based.

From now on, I will only focus on LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) based 
CMSes, because they have more chance to satisfy our requirements, specially 
#1 (easy mirrorable).
