Drupal.org and its sub-sites (api.drupal.org, groups.drupal.org, git.drupal.org, etc) will be going down for 45 minutes Thursday, April 19, 5:00 PDT (April 20 00:00 UTC). This maintenance window will be used to upgrade our backend media servers. Please follow the @drupal_infra twitter account for updates during the downtime and thanks for your patience!
NOTE: During this downtime window, we will also disable access to the git repositories via SSH. The git:// protocol will still be functional.
Hello from Jennifer, your friendly Drupal Documentation Team leader! It’s time for a quarterly update on what’s happening in the Documentation team.
First off, I just want to remind everyone that I’m still planning to step down as Documentation Team Leader at the end of 2012. If you’re interested in becoming the co-leader or assistant leader now, and taking over at the end of 2012 as the main team leader, see http://groups.drupal.org/node/203258 for more information. It would be good to find someone soon!
- The Documentation Team is currently holding weekly "Documentation Office Hours"—one-hour IRC meetings on Tuesday afternoon (North American time), open to anyone for questions and discussions about contributing to documentation. This schedule is likely to change soon; join the discussion about a new time for office hours.
- The API documentation cleanup sprint from last quarter has continued into this quarter. The goal is to bring the Drupal 7 and 8 core API documentation much more in line with our documentation standards. To join in, visit the issue page.
Milestones and Accomplishments
Drupal 7.11 and 6.23, maintenance releases which fix security vulnerabilities are now available for download.

Hello from Jennifer, your friendly Drupal Documentation Team leader! It’s time for a quarterly update on what’s happening in the Documentation team. As you probably heard, Ariane's role in the Documentation Team has changed, and she is no longer my co-leader (sob!), so I'm looking for a new deputy leader or co-leader (watch http://groups.drupal.org/documentation-team for details). Here's what Ariane and I oversaw in the Documentation Team at the end of 2011, with a look forward to 2012.
September - December Events
- The Documentation Team is holding weekly ”Documentation Office Hours"—one-hour IRC meetings on Tuesday afternoon (North American time), open to anyone for questions and discussions about contributing to documentation. It seems like it's been very helpful to have a definite time when people can get together on IRC, and we plan to continue with this schedule for the foreseeable future.
Hi everybody -
Hope you all had a great holiday, and are easing into 2012 nicely! I'll cut right to the chase with this announcement: effective pretty well immediately (as this has been in the works for a little while now), I'm stepping down as Documentation Co-lead.
Awwww, sad, I know! It's been quite the experience, and I feel like along with Jennifer and the other docs enthusiasts, we've gotten a lot done over the course of the last year and a bit of official leadership term. It's been great helping set the direction of the documentation plans, and working with everyone who's been interested in improving the documentation, as well as many of the core and contrib development teams.Read more
