Django CMS Apps Comparison

This page lists a few well-known reusable Content Management System applications for Django and tries to gather a comparison of essential features in those applications.

editor Support for WYSIWYG editor(s) and/or markup formats
img Image uploading integrated to page editing
i18n Support for multi-lingual content (versions of pages in different languages)
depth Maximum depth of page hierarchy
i18n-URL URLs (page slugs) can be translated

Most of my conclusions about supported features are based on reading the code, not on actually testing the apps. Please make corrections in case I missed something.
