Drupal is a web content management system and web application framework written in PHP. It is also a vibrant, growing, and fun community of programmers, activists and communicators. The core Drupal software is a framework to power community driven web site software, and includes features such as internationalization, tagging, and an extensive roles and permissions system. The highly extensible architecture supports well over a thousand sub-projects in the form of contributed modules and themes, so there's something for everyone.

Why has your org chosen to participate in Google Code-in?
GSoC and Code-in have resulted in attracting and retaining some of our most dedicated contributors, and we aim to repeat these successes yet another time. During Code-in, some of our participants blew us away by finishing tasks we thought would last about a week in just a few hours, producing work beyond what was expected, and taking on tasks of great complexity. The legacy of Code-in, in the form of improvements to our project and participants who remain active in the Drupal community today, has made a huge difference to Drupal, and we'd love to participate again.
Please list the years your organization has participated in Google Summer of Code.
