It's working again now, at least for the moment. Cloud Foundry is a new
service from VMWare and is very much still beta. But it makes deployment to
the cloud brain dead. It's going to be great once they get a few things
worked out.

We use Drupal for our site, so I'm not sure why we didn't look at it for the
digital library stuff. But the decision was made before I started at MAF.
