Tikiwiki comes as is, bundled with some external applications and many media files - especially Smarty and Adodb too.
GentooLinux has a separate ebuild for Smarty and Adodb, so you could as a sysadmin choose to rely on your system-wide external libraries. You are free to do so:
Take a look at TikiMods from version 1.9 on, on how to get more Mods, Styles and other nice tweaks.
Also visit StylesList and ColorSchemeGenerator for some inspiration.
All comments and suggestions, and any kind of cooperation are very welcome!

CVS Doc section
This is where new features being developed and only in CVS are documented. When the CVS becomes RC/official release, the info in the CVS docs is transferred to update the official docs (FeatureXDoc).
For a start the ebuild is going to use CVS checkout of Tiki for installing a bare 1.8 Tiki version, and patching it for the use of external Gentoo-Smarty.
Where ideas can be exchanged, debated, etc. Interested people can subscribe to the wiki page and/or to these forums as they would a mailing list.
Yet Another Ebuild Is Soon To Come.
