Drupal is different things to different people. It is a CMF (Content
Framework), a project, and a community, way before it being "just a blog".

One of the things I suggested on the marketing group is developing

The developer version is, well, Drupal itself. The API is there, and one can

Install profiles address the rest. If one wants a blogging install profile,
it is fairly straightforward to do one. Perhaps it is done already even.
