This is more of a wish, but my world would be complete if there was a true integration of wordpress into drupal, just like the gallery module integrates Gallery2 and drupal.
Drupal does lots of things well, but wordpress is just more specifically suited for blogging than drupal (in my opinion, of course). Wordpress isn't trying to be drupal, it's just great for blogging, just like Gallery does what it does with a lot more features and usability than drupal. But drupal does everything else for managing communities better. Right now I have to use wordpress for all my blogging and aggregate the feeds into drupal nodes with aggregator2 to have a full community site with user blogs.
Anyway, I'm not looking for suggestions on how to make drupal a blogging solution--wordpress already does everything I need and is more end-user developed (widgets, for example) for blogging. And I'm not trying to start a thread on which is better, worpress or drupal. To me it doesn't make sense to compare them since they're each trying to do different things.
I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this same thought and how realistic it is to hope that someday there might be a wordpress module for drupal. What I'm trying to say is that it would make more sense in my mind for there to be a drupal module that integrates wordpress than to hope that 5 years down the road, drupal would have similarly advanced blogging capabilities. Just like I'm not holding my breath that gallery turns into community plumbing or wordpress suddenly has the capabilities of drupal.
If anyone has comments, please let me know.
