Welcome

As state governments and federal agencies turn to Drupal as a content backbone, this working group is to discuss best practices, collaborative development and shared resources.

Particularly beneficial would be information on technical requirements for federal government applications including credential management, security, and permissions, and if there are gaps in current Drupal modules to address common technical requirements.

You can find us on freenode in #Drupal4Gov.

Are there any standards for documenting Drupal site architecture?

When someone builds a Drupal site to solve a set of needs, many decisions are made along the way which shift the end product from off-the-shelf Drupal to a custom architected solution. While there is plenty of documentation for stock Drupal, and for many contrib modules, frequently there is no documentation for the specific customizations made to your site. Having no site architecture documentation is a problematical condition for any organization concerned about maintainability and ability to make changes to the site themselves.

Document Handling - Elfinder

We've had this problem for a while in terms of handling a single document that appeared in multiple locations on the site.

(IE, you want the Budget on three different pages, but you don't want three different versions of the Budget floating around).

The problem we'd run into is that we wouldn't know which files were updated and which weren't, because if you loaded a file through the Drupal user interface, it would create a brand new document, instead of updating it.
