Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
Today, as part of the O'Reilly Open Source Conference, Drupal was awarded a $5000 USD bounty as part of the bounty program announced last year. I'm proud to say we were one of the first three projects awarded along with Plone and dotnetnuke. The award comes for including OpenID support in core for the upcoming Drupal 6 release, as previously announced. The bounty, sponsored by the newly formed OpenID Foundation, will go directly to the Drupal Association.
Special thank you to Scott Kveton and the OpenID Foundation for creating the bounty, as well as to SPAWAR for sponsoring the Drupal development.
