Drupal is one of the largest open source communities in the world. Each year Drupal.org and its sub-sites serve millions of visitors, and thousands of active contributors. It is one of the largest continuously operating Drupal sites in the world. And because of that, it has 15 years of legacy content and features. At this scale, it's impossible to make real improvements to Drupal.org without a prioritized roadmap, focusing on a few, high impact features at a time. This is our roadmap.

Maintenance & Sustenance

Always present alongside our roadmap for improvements to Drupal.org is the maintenance work that sustains the services that the Drupal community depends on. The Drupal Association is responsible for Drupal.org and its sub-sites, as well as a number of key services that scaffold the Drupal project itself.

Sub-Sites

Site Description
www.drupal.org The primary home of the community, and the host of Drupal core, contributed projects, the issue queues, documentation, support resources, and more.
Api.drupal.org Automated api reference generated from the Drupal codebase.
Assoc.drupal.org The home of the Drupal Association, and our membership system.
Events.drupal.org The Events site hosts DrupalCon.
Groups.drupal.org Groups is a place for the community to collaborate around local user groups, interest groups, and initiatives.
Jobs.drupal.org The Drupal Jobs site provides talent for Drupal companies, and employment opportunities for Drupal developers.
Localize.drupal.org Translations for Drupal are managed and centrally hosted on localize.Drupal.org.
Security.drupal.org The Security site allows the security team and affected project maintainers to securely resolve reported security issues, before those issues are publicly disclosed.

Core Services

Service Description
Code Repositories We maintain the git repositories that host all of the projects on Drupal.org (including Drupal core itself).
Code Viewing We use cgit and drupalcode.org to provide web based code viewing into our repositories.
Updates We provide the updates.xml feed that is consumed by Drupal sites to provide notification of available updates.
Identity We use the Bakery module to synchronize account data between www.drupal.org and all of the sub-sites.
Testing DrupalCI provides automated testing for Drupal core and contributed projects.
Composer The Drupal.org Composer Façade translates project meta data into the packages.json format that allows developers to use Composer to manage Drupal projects.

Pre-production Development and staging environments for Drupal.org and its sub-sites.
Camp Archives We host archives of camp websites from the community on Drupalcamp.org.
