Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
Drupal.org and its sub-sites (api.drupal.org, groups.drupal.org, git.drupal.org, etc) will be going down for 45 minutes Thursday, April 19, 5:00 PDT (April 20 00:00 UTC). This maintenance window will be used to upgrade our backend media servers. Please follow the @drupal_infra twitter account for updates during the downtime and thanks for your patience!
NOTE: During this downtime window, we will also disable access to the git repositories via SSH. The git:// protocol will still be functional.
