Drupal for newspaper

Hi, I'm Craig Ringer from the POST Newspapers, a local newspaper in Perth, Western Australia.

I'm posting here to find out more about Drupal for internal CMS/workflow use, and to find out what others use for some of their other newspaper-related business software like class/pag.

As is frequently the case I'm the only techie in the newspaper, and close to the only computer literate person here. I'm an experienced Java and C++ programmer with experience working with PostgreSQL, but I'm on fresh ground with PHP for Drupal and am new to templated HTML+CSS CMS themeing etc. I'm currently working on writing a newspaper accounts/bookings system for my employer, and am investigating software options for other parts of the business.

How many development hours to expect?

I'm brand spanking new to Drupal and to this forum. I poked around a bit and didn't see anything posted on this topic yet.

I've just taken on a freelance project to create a newspaper (or newspaper-like) website for a client. So far what I know is that he wants to have different departments (I'm assuming things like "current events", "sports", "entertainment", etc.) and he also wants several different people to contribute content. He wants to be able to post different types of content: text, slideshows, videos, etc. Knowing this, Drupal sounds like a good solution.
