Now, this module can basically work in the following way:-Read more
I would be interested in creating a tool which can initiated for the Drupal community website. It would sort out various modules available for Drupal, based on their popularity, and suggest on the most popular modules/themes which can be integrated with the Drupal core.

So I'm looking for a project. I don't really know what I want to do, but I was thinking somewhere in the direction of Drupal 8 core or the Prairie initiative however I'll take all the ideas I can get.
