Again, I have not had the chance to review the recipe, but see NewGroupBox:

At the moment Pm and I don't have the possibility to review and support all 
recipes that might be used in a CMS installation. 

But you can create a recipe page detailing how you use PmWiki as a CMS, which 
recipes you recommend, and even support and offer for download your bundle. 
Just don't call it "PmWiki CMS" or "PmCMS" as visitors may assume that Pm 
wrote it or endorses it; a better name would be "Form based CMS" or something 
less generic like "JoshCMS", etc.

Other people have done it for blogs, see 


P.S. We all use PmWiki for content management, PmWiki *is* a content 
management system. For example I use none of the recipes listed above for my 
content management. :-) So, it depends on the needs of each team, or more 
likely on the admin's (or management's) assumptions about these needs.
