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.
