Distributions provide site features and functions for a specific type of site as a single download containing Drupal core, contributed modules, themes, and pre-defined configuration. They make it possible to quickly set up a complex, use-specific site in fewer steps than if installing and configuring elements individually.
These modules have been identified by the members of the Community Media group as modules that should only be used after mastering at least some of the modules listed in the Moderate grouping. These are modules shared by large sites with staff who can support the more complicated configurations like channelAustin, MNN, and RETN.
This is an install profile that does everything that the 'Default' Drupal 6 profile does, but it also installs Admin Menu. (For Drupal 7, it uses a modified version of the 'Standard' profile.) I use this for every test site that I create, and find it very useful. I hope that I am not the only one!
This profile installs the Admin Menu, but is otherwise identical to the core default profile.

Say goodbye to your Drupal theme. Say hello to Catalyst!

The OpenCivic distro of Drupal is designed to support communities of software developers in creating, cataloguing and sharing software applications. It provides a platform for sharing information specifically about "civic software" used by governments and nonprofit organizations to provide public services. The main goal of this distro therefore is to help build websites that enable people to share information about software applications — what they do, who created them and uses them, where they have been deployed, and how well the software works.

Totem is a packaged distribution designed for organizations that want to build communities of users who have very specific interests and who want to share topical discussions, media and events with their peers. A "community" might be defined as:
A group of like-minded researchers who want to collaborate and share data, figures and lessons learned.
A member-based organization looking to create dedicated collaboration spaces for its working groups (such as local chapters or unions).
A group of folks brainstormed by your client, centered around [insert primary business objective here]; this client wants a branded, Facebook-like site to call their own. Millions will be made...they just need the right free distro to get them there. All you have to do is download and install...

New in 1.0: Support for the new .TXT format raw logs. In January, Apple discontinued the XLS-format reports sent by email. Now you can load any XLS files you already have PLUS the new TXT format logs, and get a single full report spanning all dates regardless of the report file format you import.
Some current users of this app are UNESCO, University of Wisconsin-Madison, New Media Consortium (NMC) and Tecnológico de Monterrey.
Wheke is a Drupal 7 distribution with modules preconfigured for helping libraries to build their website. It contains an installation profile which will give availability to choose customisations. Today, it is based on standard profile, it activates modules and install a default theme.
"JUMPSTART" is an installation profile designed to get a site up and running quickly. It creates a Drupal7 site, enables some of the most usefull core and contributed modules while it does not enable some core modules that are enabled on the "standart" installation profile.
It helps for rapid-development, creating sandboxes and of course for every day drupal usage since it saves you some time (eg: it auto enables views).
Contrary to most Installation Profiles, Jumpstart is version agnostic.
This means that it can be used against any version of D7. This is true for
the modules too. The reason that Jumpstart is version agnostic is simple:
By itself it doesn't do much, it simply enables a set of common modules.
NOTE: drupal.org demands a version on each project that is being packaged. So an experienced user might prefer using the profile-only package instead of the one including core.
At the moment Jumpstart enables the following modules (and dependencies):
Colorbox (the .make file also fetches the script)
It doesn't enable comments, toolbar, overlay and several other core modules.
This shouldn't tamper with the users experience in any way though.
OpenBrewery is a minimalist Drupal 7 distribution that provides the basics for building a site for a brewery or brewpub.

Features include markdown support, age verification, staff profiles, beer content types, and other cool things.
