Libre CMS

This is a list of libre CMS.
Three criteria were on consideration when choosing this technologies:

  1. The Open Source filter must be active.
  2. The software itself must be LIBRE and open source, as defined by the Free Software Foundation.
  3. The official website of the software must be LIBRE: it must not use technologies from Google, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Microsoft or Adobe.

This job has been done based on Wordpress's list of alternatives, and every single open source CMS on that list (141 in total) has been analyzed with reverse engineering technology Similartech.
Which opinion do you think this topic deserves, if I told you that from 141 CMS, only 7 had enough dignity to say NO to Google and Facebook? Don't you think this is a proof that web developpers don't give a fuck on users' privacy?
What sense does it make an open source CMS, if you depend on technology demons like Google, who give away your private data to NSA and political parties (beside thousands of other dark institutions and companies)?
It's not enough with financial freedom, we need intelectual freedom too to be really free.
Detailed comparison spreadsheet will be able soon with a CC BY 4.0 license, and probably on Wikipedia too.
