Reinventing Drupal.org

Seven years ago this month, Dries presented the State of Drupal in front of a few dozen developers at the Open Source Content Management System Summit on the Yahoo! campus in Sunnyvale, California. Drupal 5 had just come out, PHPTemplate was all the rage, and everyone was abuzz about the news that the Nigerian Prime Minister was using Drupal for his blog.

Today, Drupal is used by the President of the United States and nearly every other government on the planet, DrupalCons are attended by thousands of people, and PHPTemplate will soon be replaced by Twig in Drupal 8. The Drupal project and community have grown rapidly in a very short amount of time.

Any IdeaScale ideas still relevant for Sumemr of Code?

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.

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.
