Both the community and Dries Buytaert, Project Lead, see a need to evolve Drupal community governance. The Drupal Association can help in a support role. We will start by hosting mediated community discussions so everyone around the world can participate, be heard and understood, and share their ideas.
This new version includes improvements to authoring experience, site administration, REST support, and a stable version of the BigPipe module. Several experimental workflow, layout and content moderation improvements are included as well.
It will take time to heal, but we want to make a start today by providing insight into our decision-making, answering questions, and placing a call for improvements to our governance, conflict-resolution processes, and communication.
Any user on Drupal.org who has accepted our Git usage policy may now create full projects with releases. This is a big change in policy for the Drupal project, representing an evolution of the contribution ecosystem in the past half a decade.
