Looks like someone has already discussed if it is notable from the 
Mediawiki talk page.

" Currently I don't see any sources showing that this software is 
notable. If it is, shouldn't such be justified be justified by 
citations? Seems a lot of the article may be self-published or 
non-notable, though I may not understand these issues well."

Ive begun looking at Citizenpedia as an alternative to Wikipedia recently.
