Which links to a number of draft charters for working groups focussed on different facets of the community, the software project, our tools and infrastructure.
blockquote>This is a work in progress. Please help shape the future of Drupal.org governance by reviewing and commenting on the following proposals:
Drupal is going to be spread out and exposed bigger than ever in Korea soon.
Drupal Camp Seoul 2012 is scheduled on Oct 6th 2-6PM for 100 seats and already more than 111 people signed up for 120 limit signup capacity.
Not many people ever heard of Drupal in Korea and this camp is not like other drupal camp in USA or European countries.
It is more like introducing Drupal along with other CMS.
I wondered if Drupal Association would be interested in supporting to spread out Drupal in Korea with this event.
One thing I thought was having video setup and edit and share/upload.
Web conferencing is becoming more an integral part of how we collaborate yet we seem to have problem upon problem and every time try out different services. Webchick said happy to hear about alternatives that are as inclusive as a phone, I believe the open source ones will connect using asterisk.
We've had issues on call quality, costs, scaling, so thinking a little longer term would it be good to investigate investing in our own infrastructure for this? Or perhaps work with other projects who may have similar issues?
Here's a few links:Read more
To date I have found no quick way to determine which Drupal 6 contributed modules have been ported to Drupal 7.
This information is critical to version selection, and to site building.
Do you know of one, such as an automatically-updated table that provides this information?
Thanks in advance,
One of the most important financial sources for Drupal Association are membership fees. They help fund community projects like DrupalCon scholarships, grants, Drupal.org improvements and more. Currently, there are 800,000 d.o user accounts and only 3,000 of them are Association members. We are looking for ways of increasing this number. If we can grow our membership we will be able to raise more money for various community projects, most importantly for Drupal.org itself.Read more
Was wondering if we could include pre-commit git hooks in module/theme repositories to check drupal coding standards. (Like the ones provided by http://drupal.org/project/git_hooks).
This would help in standardizing the code on d.o
The only problem I find is ... new contributors may find it irritating and hence put them off.
Thanks to everyone who voted on Drupal.org ideas! Based on that, as well as a few conversations with some key Drupal.org infrastructure maintainers, here's a draft of the proposal for the board meeting next week, for your review!Read more
Two of the Drupal Association's 2012 priorities are to make Drupal.org awesome: both for site builders and for developers. We want to hear from you about what improvements you'd most like to see on Drupal.org.
Please let us know your thoughts at http://drupal-association.ideascale.com/. You can propose new ideas, vote on existing ideas, and also leave comments. When we have the more discrete list of things we plan to cover in 2012 and when, we'll share it with the community for feedback.

Site builders are not developers -- they are architects and masterminds behind Drupal-based websites. This group of individuals wants to find the best or newest modules and themes fast. They also want access to great documentation with easy to understand instructions for the tasks they need to do. And they want to get quick and reliable answers to their support questions.

Collaboration tools on drupal.org including Git, the issue queue, development environments, project pages, etc. This objective is designed for developers that are using drupal.org to collaborate, build, and create new modules, themes, or working on Drupal core.
