Once you have obtained basic Git access on Drupal.org, you can create a sandbox project as follows:
- Add a new project: module, theme, or distribution
- Fill out the form. Your new project will initially be a sandbox project. If you have permission to promote projects from Sandbox to Full projects, you will see a checkbox allowing you to choose Full project, but normally it is best to start with a Sandbox anyway.
- Click the Save button. Drupal creates and loads a page for your new project.
- Click the Version control tab near the top of the new project page for instructions on how to start committing code to your sandbox repository.
The project will appear in the My Projects page in your dashboard.
Once you have created it, you can edit the Maintainers section to grant access to other users.
If you do not have permission to promote projects from Sandbox to Full projects, once your sandbox is in a state where you think it is ready to be promoted to a full project, you may want to apply for that permission. Please see the Drupal.org Project applications for more information about this.
