Last updated March 14, 2015.

At this stage in Drupal 8, most members of initiatives are helping across all initiatives, focusing on criticals and getting Drupal 8 released.

This page is deprecated. See http://cgit.drupalcode.org/drupal/tree/core/MAINTAINERS.txt for a current list of initiatives and initiative leads.

We are hard at work on the next version of Drupal. Some of the great things planned include better HTML5 and mobile support, improved multilingual features, and setting up Drupal 8 on a modern web development framework. But we can't do any of it without your help!

Core development structure

Drupal 8 is the first development cycle introducing official Core initiatives. These are areas with named leads to improve Drupal core in certain areas. However, this does not limit core development to these main areas, there are many community initiatives as well.

Scrum notes from Meeting #45 - 7/17/2013

#2012020: Complete a survey of 3rd party resources to aid with component naming conventions
Do a survey of various style guides to see what others have named these components and build a list of possible components in a Google drive spreadsheet at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvR7gnIrX0ckdDgzNDI0blZVSnF...

As components are identified, create an issue for each component and then try to come to consensus based on the survey data. Add that new issue to the issue summary of #1995272: [Meta] Refactor module CSS files to use component-style selectors

Jesse has been driving a lot of front end work in improving the Accessibility of Drupal.
She will be speaking at Drupal Gov Days next week about accessibility
