It's been a month since DrupalCon Portland and oh what a busy month has it been! Quick notes below.
Drupal 7 upgrade
The upgrade project slowed down due to recent events. There was limited progress for 2 weeks following the security incident as everyone was working on security hardening. We started slowly to get up to speed again last week and the open issues count should be going down again soon.
We are getting closer and closer to the QA phase. Currently we are working on the plan for QA and discussing contract details with a person who will help us with this part of the project.
As always, we’d like to say thanks to all volunteers who are working with us and to the Drupal Association Supporting Partners, who made it possible for us to continue the upgrade project. The Supporting Partner Program crowd sources funds that pay for the development team’s time and Drupal.org hosting costs.
A couple of weeks ago we announced Drupal.org Working Groups. Groups spent these weeks figuring out tools and processes they will use, having initial meetings for members to meet each other, setting up regular meeting schedule, etc. Once they start having their regular meetings, you should expect meeting minutes published, as well as updates from the Group chairs.
As many of you noticed association.drupal.org was down for some time while we were working on hardening the site following the security incident. The site has been back up for some time now, however we kept our membership system down to upgrade it and improve its security. Today the system is back, you can go to https://association.drupal.org/membership/ and join or renew your Drupal Association membership!
