Comments

Managing News is a compendium of Drupal with news-related modules in one package. If a distribution fits your particular needs, it's easier to set up than a "roll your own" Drupal site. You lose no flexibility in your ability to customize the modules later.

Is it possible to add Managing News to an existing drupal 7.8 installation?

No.
