| During my testing, Acquia did meet the specified response deadline — and
| resolved my questions satisfactorily.

| add-on modules. When the Test Center reviewed open source CMSes (content
| management systems), these two factors often broke the tie between otherwise
| robust solutions and gave Alfresco the advantage.
