I think the biggest things at the moment are:
- permissions
- edit/delete election
- duplicate membership detection

sure... except the news and press pages are currently set up like this
- pivot install
	- create post *in specific category* (and not able to edit other
- pivot publishes RSS
- a (not planet la) planet install grabs the RSS
- planet produces HTML
- index.php for linux.org.au includes the HTML

I'm sure drupal has a simpler way to do the same thing :)
