The Boston sprint is dedicated to upgrading drupal.org's Drupal 5 platform to Drupal 6, in preparation for the redesign. During this week-long sprint at One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) offices in Kendall Square, Cambridge, MA, we plan to get a working upgrade path for the existing drupal.org databases, port the project infrastructure to Drupal 6, and implement Views, among other issues.
Please see the project issues list and email Susan MacPhee at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer expertise on issues you can help resolve.
In your email, please include your level of time commitment, Drupal experience background, and which tasks you would like to help with.
If you have any questions, please contact Susan.
