Last week we deployed a major improvement for issue page workflow: https://drupal.org/node/2159813. The issue edit form is back on the issue page, instead of the standard comment form. Huge thanks to webchick, Mark Carver, sanchiz, Bojhan, joachim and everyone else who worked on the issue.Read more
Are any of the IdeaScale ideas still relevant @ http://drupal-association.ideascale.com/ ? Some of these ideas will work out perfectly for a Google Summer of Code project and the ideas are already nicely documented.
Anyone interested in being a mentor or know a friend that might? Maybe you have another project in mind? Please add ideas into the 2014 GSoC Drupal Idea Wiki (https://groups.drupal.org/node/404778). We hope to finish reviewing GSoC ideas by this Wednesday night Feb 12th at midnight UTC-6.Read more
The Drupal.org Software Working Group (drumm, eliza411, tvn, webchick) was chartered to provide vision and direction for Drupal.org by working with the community on Drupal.org software in a number of ways. The first duty on our list is establishing team leadership for all areas of *.Drupal.org, to establish clear decision-making processes.Read more
This document is the second revision of the proposal, based on feedback from the discussion which began at https://groups.drupal.org/node/400478. It is still a draft. We expect to refine it in conjunction with the people actually filling the roles before finalizing their appointment.

Recently we published our Tech team plan for the first quarter of 2014. To ensure that we are not only telling you about our plans, but also update on the progress as we go, we are bringing back our traditional bi-weekly ‘week notes’ posts. Welcome to the first week notes of 2014!
Drupal 7 upgrade cleanupRead more
I've been going through the Drupal.org Customizations list.
Realized with many of the changes it would to be able to evaluate with some sort of AB testing.
It would be really good to have measurable results for various changes so that we can actually test what the impact of the is.Read more
I've been worried about Drupal participation lately. Partly because we should be at the peak of D7 participation right now and there are still so many modules that are lagging in an unfinished state. I don't remember this being the case with D6 contrib modules prior to the release of D7, but I have no facts to back that up.
Most of the posts are in here - https://drupal.org/project/drupalorg
Which may not be the right place to put them, but when I've got working examples, it's more concrete than just a discussion.
Gittip inclusion https://drupal.org/node/2138397 - PostponedRead more
We’ve narrowed down the list of candidates and are now in the final process of confirming their availability and getting other details in order. Look for a final post running down the roster on the January 30, as well as more concrete steps on how to interact with the team going forward.
There is never a shortage of things to do on Drupal.org and that’s never been more true than right now. We have D7 upgrade clean up to finish, as well as variety of improvements that were on hold during the upgrade. We want you to know what our tech team is focused on and where we’re spending our time, so here are some of the pieces in our first quarter roadmap.

The new issue queue workflow has been in place for over a month. It has prompted a lot more feedback from the community than during the Q/A period back in May. This feedback has been grouped together using the tag “D.o UX”, and it is clear that there has been a significant disruption to the contributor workflow.Read more

- Look at the timeline for appointment
Back in summer the Drupal.org Software Working Group formulated a number of priorities for us for this year. One of them was - improving development process on Drupal.org. As everyone would probably agree, the current process is inefficient. It is hard to know what is the best place to suggest an idea. It’s not clear who can decide if an idea is good and should indeed be implemented. The process of getting your change deployed on production is not clear.Read more
