Seeking feedback on the security team disclosure policy.

The security working group is proposing this policy around disclosure of private information. We are seeking community feedback.

In the past our policy has been a tad thin.

“State that you are willing to keep the confidential issues of the team confidential”

This document aims to add clarity to that sentence and some example scenarios to guide team members decision making.

We are seeking public feedback before making this a policy.

The policy is attached as a PDF.

Please provide feedback by commenting on the post

Evolving and documenting Drupal core's structure, responsibilities, and decision-making

The Drupal project just turned 14 years old. There are now over 1 million known installations of Drupal, and Drupal.org has over 1 million users. Drupal 8 has over 2,700 contributors (almost three times that of Drupal 7) and over 13,000 commits so far (50% more commits per day on average than Drupal 7). I wanted to take an opportunity to reflect on our current governance structure and try to evolve the Drupal leadership team and decision-making, enable better scaling, and document both the formal and informal processes we have currently in place.

The Community Working Group: What We Do, and How We Do It

In previous posts, we’ve talked about who the Community Working Group (CWG) is and why we’re here, as well some of the work we’ve done around establishing a process for conflict resolution in the Drupal community.

In this post, I’d like to go into more detail about what happens when folks file incident reports with the Community Working Group, and open up the conversation on how we can more effectively address issues that have a larger impact on the Drupal community as a whole.

Shared Values and the Drupal Community

Dries recently wrote a blog post about the challenges of fostering diversity and inclusivity in the Drupal community. This is the latest installment of a conversation that’s been going on for years.

In 2012, a group of Drupal community members worked together to draft a Code of Conduct that could be used to supplement the Drupal community’s Code of Conduct at DrupalCon and other in-person events.

New Drupal.org ideation tool proposal

Greetings from your friendly neighbourhood Drupal.org Software Working Group!

https://drupal.org/node/2261945 has a proposal + mockups on a new way to handle feature requests for Drupal.org in order to help both the Drupal.org Software Working Group and other working groups prioritize the feature roadmap for Drupal.org. Since this tool will become the method through which the Drupal community (in the widest sense of the word) makes known their Drupal.org needs/wants/desires, we'd love to hear your comments and feedback on the proposal.

Conflict Resolution Policy and Process

UPDATE: The policy has now been adopted by the community working group. It lives here: https://drupal.org/conflict-resolution (now with pretty URL!)


For some time we've had a bit of unfinished business around the Drupal Code of Conduct around how we manage and respond to conflict.

The Community Working Group has drafted a policy and is now looking for community feedback over the next 2 weeks. Please check out the draft in the drupal-cwg issue queue.
