CMScout is a CMS (Content management system) for scouting related groups from around the world.
A CMS is a piece of web software that makes it easy for you to install, and manage a website.
CMScout includes all the features of other major CMS's that are available (Like PHP-Nuke, Mambo, e107, etc.).
