If you are reading this announcement right now, then we did it! Drupal.org runs on Drupal 7. This was a big and complicated project, which took longer than we expected. But we are finally done.

What changed?

Our goal was a straight port to Drupal 7 without major changes to functionality or layout, but with greatly improved code under the hood. However some things did change, please see Drupal.org D7 F.A.Q. for details. Overall Drupal 7 gives us more flexibility to implement new features and there will be a boost in performance for some of the pages.

NOTE: issues are still being indexed, listings and searches will show incomplete results till the indexing is done.

What’s next?

There probably will be some bugs. If you encounter something unusual, please check the Drupal.org D7 F.A.Q. first. It may be that the change was intentional. If you are sure that you found a bug, please use the D7 upgrade QA queue to report them.

The only thing we really want to say now is.. let’s party THANK YOU!

Thank you to all of you for being patient with us during this long project. We know it took longer than anticipated and there were some bumps along the way. Our only goal throughout the project was to make Drupal.org better for all of you.

Thank you to all our fantastic contributors. There are so many of them, we even have a special page. Thank you:

Thank you to the Drupal Association Supporting Partners, who gave us the funding required to make the upgrade happen.

We couldn’t have done this without you!

I agree. Amazing work from amazing dedicated individuals. I am nervous to do this same feat all on my own for my volunteer group's web site; however, I am encouraged by your success.

For those who needs to search something in D.O but doesn't have the search items indexed, use the Google instead:

"site:drupal.org your search keywords"

Aside from the web site being unavailable during the upgrade, a smooth and seamless transition!

I was wondering if you have a upgrade checklist (or if you'll do a post upgrade lessons learned) if you could make those available to the community.

Something that I'm getting more requests for is to upgrade a site from one version of Drupal to another. A large, heavily used site like Drupal.org would make an excellent case study for such a project.

If there is enough interest in the Drupal Community, I'd be happy to join other volunteers in helping to get such information together.

Once again, top notch job!

I can't tell you how AMAZING it was to reload my issue tracker this morning and see Drupal.org coming back at me with a nice banner telling me the good news!! :)

Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you SO MUCH for all of your tireless work on this, despite all of the numerous competing things you were trying to juggle at once, despite all of the grumbling from the community (including me :\), despite all of the other roadblocks that were thrown at you along the way.

Please sleep many, many hours and have lovely dreams of passing Behat tests, speedy performance, and an utter lack of bugs. :D

@cabplan, this is not the place to file issues. That would be at the Drupal.org D7 upgrade QA, https://drupal.org/project/d7qa .

Instead, this is the place to celebrate all the good that's been done. Which I do, with much gratitude to the team that made it happen. :)
