Our awesome community recently became a bit more awesome. Drupal was accepted into Google's Summer of Code 2014! Student applications started March 10th and are open until March 21st. It's not too late to become a student, mentor, or submit a project idea. Not available to join the GSoC fun...maybe you can send an email to your alumni university mailing list?Read more
Recently, the Association posted a discussion here in groups (https://groups.drupal.org/node/398548) which resulted in the Association registering Drupal.org to participate in TheDayWeFightBack (https://drupal.org/node/2188053). As we have discussed, there were technical issues we could have addressed differently (see the discussion: https://groups.drupal.org/node/407283), but we also heard from many community members who felt that Drupal.org should never be involved in any kind of political campaign at all.Read more
A couple months ago, at the BADCamp devops summit, we held a workshop to discuss the architecture and operation of the current Drupal.org Automated Testing infrastructure, as well as to review a proposed future state architecture for the platform.
This post is an attempt to summarize the discussion, outline the proposed architecture as presented, and discuss some next steps.Read more
DrupalCampChina 2014 is a one day event that focuses on many aspects of Drupal in one location. Its focus is knowledge sharing among the community. Essentially, you’re getting the community together to do some community training. The term "Camp" comes from Barcamp, like an informal non-conference that happens at a bar.
Generally speaking, DrupalCampaChina is an extension of a meetup (e.g. the meetups in Shanghai).
On April 25 - 27, join us for the second DrupalCamp Donetsk (Ukraine)!
The event will include two days of sessions and BoFs (in English and Russian), trivia night, Drupal Party, and full day code sprint. It is a great opportunity to meet East European Drupal community.
Come and share your Drupal knowledge and ideas, sessions in English are welcome. And if all the sprints during Dev Days Szeged just weren't enough, you can work on Drupal 8 some more at our Sunday code sprint!
Registrations are already open: http://camp2014.drupal.dn.ua/en/conference/ticketsRead 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.
From the charter:
(DSWG) Creates and removes teams for each major area of the Drupal.org websites, which have authority to make software and feature decisions within their scope. The DSWG defines and appoints the leadership roles within each team, such as a technical lead, product owner, QA lead, etc.
