This section describes the overall governance of the Drupal project, the websites, and other aspects of the community.

For governance-related discussions use Drupal Community Governance issue queue.

This project was formed to work together on the Drupal community's governance process and structure and policies. If you're interested in specific issues regarding governance, take a look in the issue queue and add more if you'd like.

The repository holds a collection of charters relating to Drupal community governance working groups, as well as a place to hold discussion about said policies. These charters are currently solely maintained by Dries Buytaert. Other governance policy documentation can be found at About Drupal: Governance.


For the Drupal project, we are working towards developing a number of working groups related to various aspects of the community (security, documentation, conflict resolution, Drupal core, etc.), with Dries Buytaert as the final decision-maker:

Dries Buytaert
Community Working Group Documentation Working Group Drupal core version N working group? Security Working Group Technical Working Group

In the case of certain aspects of the community that fall under the Drupal Association's mission, however, it makes sense for this final decision-maker to be the Drupal Association, since they are ultimately responsible for the website, purchasing hardware, etc.
