Past month(s) we all have been very busy working on Drupal 7 upgrade of our website. Below are latest updates on the project status from Joel ‘Senpai’ Farris.
Drupal 7 upgrade
We had several sprints: at the end of October in Seattle, WA for the Pacific Northwest Drupal Summit, and in Portland, OR at OpenSourcery’s offices (http://groups.drupal.org/node/262558), then again in early November each day at the BADcamp.There was a little bit of work accomplished at the PNWDS sprint, some good stuff relating to ApacheSolr and the project_solr module happened at the Portland sprint, and a lot of great work surrounding the last six remaining contrib modules happened at the BADcamp sprint. The Diff module has reached a stable release, as well as Machine Name. Entity Reference and Entity API are 98% release-able as well, Field Collection has no criticals left, and Materialized Views is no longer needed for drupal.org so we took it off the list.Read more

Or better.. help us make it faster by reviewing some of the requests! Find out how you can help.Read more
We are finally back after Drupalcon and "after-Drupalcon week" with a short week notes post.
was amazing! We've had several BOF sessions, met lots of community members and had lots of productive discussions. Drupal.org office hours BOF resulted in a "Drupal 8 call to action" block on the drupal.org front page (thanks woeldiche). Notes from other BOFs will be published as updates to their relevant issues or groups on groups.drupal.org.
Last week the COD team finished their summer marathon and launched five DrupalCon websites on the latest version of COD for Drupal 7. Find more details in this blog post by Jacob Redding. We'd like to say thank you to everyone who helped us make that happen.
During the past weeks it seems we've reached a consensus on the guidelines for the Marketplace and are going to move forward with the code implementation in the next few weeks.Read more
For the past few months, we have been holding "Drupal.org Office Hours" on IRC. Each Monday anyone interested in contributing to Drupal.org development had a chance to talk to the team, get support and advice, generally see what we are working on. Lately we noticed that less and less people attend office hours. We would like to know what is the reason and how can we make office hours more efficient. Please fill out this short survey to let us know how we can improve!
Now to the updates.Read more
