I selected David Rothstein as my co-maintainer for Drupal 7 back in May of 2012. Since then, David has done a tremendous job shepherding the Drupal 7 release, paying very careful attention to the ramifications of any given patch and allowing ample time for "real world" testing before incorporating changes into the code base, ensuring that the code powering 2% of the Internet stays stable and performant.
However, after nearly 4 years of excellent stewardship on his own, David would like to also focus on other endeavors, including Drupal 8. Now the time has come to select an additional co-maintainer for Drupal 7. While David himself has recommended some excellent candidates, I'd also like to open the call out more broadly, to see if there are others who have an inclination and interest.Read more

(Stretching the definition of the "core" group a bit here, but this is important to Drupal 8, so hopefully this is ok. :))
Now that Drupal 8.0.0 is nearing its final release, the next task in front of the Drupal community is porting ALL the contributed projects! Luckily, this effort is very much underway, but the faster the majority of big modules are at least usable (ideally with stable releases), the faster Drupal 8 adoption will take off.Read more

Dries Buytaert, the Drupal project lead, will facilitate a Drupal 8 retrospective discussion at DrupalCon Barcelona.
After more than four years of development, Drupal 8 is quickly approaching its first release candidate. This will be a landmark release with myriad new features and improvements. In addition to many technical changes, we innovated on how we collaborate on the Drupal project itself as well as on drupal.org. We involved more than three times the contributors of Drupal 7. Now it's time to take stock of the cycle, of where we've been and how it went, so we can keep improving. We'd like your input on the following:
- What worked well? What were the highlights of the Drupal 8 cycle?
- What didn't work well? What are lessons we've learned for upcoming releases or for the community as a whole?
- What concrete improvements can we make for future releases (both minor and major)? We welcome suggestions around teams, tools, or processes.
Please submit your answers online. Dries will gather the community's responses and use them as the basis for the open discussion at DrupalCon Barcelona.Read more
