This summer the Drupal Association is tacklng a number of initiatives to make drupal.org awesome and to improve Cod for use at DrupalCon. To help complete these initiatives we're looking for a few good developers to jump in and help out. As an open source project there are many ways you can be a part of the team. Review the projects we're working on and choose the one that's right for you:
DrupalCon: Improvements to Cod
The Conference Organizing Distribution better known as Cod is the distribution used for the DrupalCon website. We are currently upgrading the distribution to Drupal 7 for use at DrupalCon Munich, DrupalCon Sao Paulo, DrupalCon Portland, and DrupalCon Europe 2013 (TBA). The distribution is also used by many DrupalCamps. This is a great opportunity to not only get involved in an awesome distribution but also help out the websites of the community's conferences and camps.
Opensourcery has generously donated the project management time of Heather.
Acquia is providing the time of lead Cod maintainer Ezra G.
We currently have a great team of developers including Florian, Thomas, Tyler Ward, and Sheldon Kreger - they have gotten us far down the road but we have room for more folks.
Upgrade Drupal.org to Drupal 7
We are in the midst of upgrading Drupal.org to Drupal 7. This has been a long time coming and the upgrade will help us make significant improvements to our community's home. our goal is to launch Drupal.org on Drupal 7 before DrupalCon Munich but we can't do it without your help.
Joel Farris (senpai) is the lead Project Manager
3281d (dww, hunmonk, mikey_p)
Tag1 Consulting (bdragon, nnewton)
Transparatech (sdboyer, senpai)
Four Kitchens (dianadupuis, DiscoFK, CoffeeIV, ChinggizKhan, mirzu, rupl)
and, of course, the DA's own Neil Drumm.
This is a great opportunity to make an impact on drupal.org and work alongside some great minds in our community.
In parallel to our upgrade project we are also improving the tools and pages on drupal.org. Lisa Rex and Ezra G have made significant progress in the last few weeks improving the Events page and Case Studies page. Lomo is working on a new version of the books page and there are many new features and functionality that is being worked on. Learn more.
Tatiana (tvn) is the Drupal.org project coordinator for these projects.
Volunteer, Paid, or Donation?
We're looking for all three. At the moment we are primarily looking for volunteers, donations of time from employers, and contractors. We are also accepting applications for full and part-time developer positions with more positions coming soon.
