Searching for norwegian drupal sites

The norwegian government is reviewing all public norwegian web sites, and is ranking them based on criterias as availability and content. This alone did not interest me in particular, but I noticed that they are listing all public norwegian web sites in one HTML page.

As I have been working with the Drupal CMS, I decided to spend some minutes to write a web-scraping script to figure out which of them was using Drupal.

What I did was to grab the list page from norge.no, extracting the ID of all the items with regex. Then visit the detail page for every web site, where I found a link to the web site itself with a name. Then I visited the web site and looked for drupal-ish content like “sites/all“. I found two web sites:

Next, I did the same looking for “eZ Publish“, something that yielded many more hits:
