Many Drupal projects are using Puppet for management of environments and setup of key Drupal pre-requisities (e.g. Apache, MySQL). Much of this work is duplicated across projects, causing time to be wasted and money lost on configuration of common services. This group is to discuss the creation of common Puppet modules to manage these services and to get Drupal projects up and running faster, particularly in enterprise and cloud environments.
Time banking is an alternative currency system that uses units of time as currency. This group is dedicated to Drupal-based time banking software, including Community Weaver and the Time Machine installation profile, and to discussing practices for using Drupal to manage time dollars or time credits.

Artesian Forum is a new Drupal module that aims to provide a native forum for Drupal that can compete with stand alone forum applications while also making use of the advantages of being a completely integrated forum. The purpose of this group is to have a place to plan the module in public where the community can watch and comment without it being hidden away on Michelle's blog or filling up the issue queue with meta discussions.
Not to be confused with THE Drupal Association, this group is for those involved in setting up legal entities in their home countries, but also for those organising less formal structures to support their local Drupal communities. There are a range of issues faced by every group that sets out on this journey, so this group aims to be a place to collect stories, share resources, warn about the pitfalls, and raise awareness of the issues we all face.Read more

Our given group will use and extend Drupal to develop a PDS application for individual users and PDS-as-a-service providers. A Drupal 'Full Project' proposal will be submitted after we get organized.Read more
The aim of this group is:
- to give members an opportunity to share their stories about building a website with Drupal for their startups
- to create a space for those willing to learn more about Drupal and ways it can help online businesses
- to foster a sense of entrepreneurship and, at the same time, offer technical guidance to those who may not be familiar with Drupal
Over time, it is hoped that this group will become an important part of the drupal community as more people come to learn Drupal for developing online businesses, be they ecommerce websites or social networks.
