Drupal Association to Support Drupal CMS Project

By Posted 2007 Updated   Tips

Drupal is a popular open source content management platform that can support a variety of websites ranging from personal weblogs to large community-driven websites. Since Drupal’s size and scope has grown beyond what a group of volunteers can realistically manage, they have launched the The Drupal Association, a non-profit organization to support the Drupal project.

Drupal announces the creation of the Drupal Association –

“Creating the Drupal Association opens up a number of opportunities. For example, donations may be given to the project through a central entity, rather than to individual community members. By handling administrative tasks, such as event management, resources are freed within the community to focus on improving the Drupal project. In the future, it will also provide the opportunity for individuals and businesses to be formally recognized as supporters of the project.”

A press release by the Drupal Association says

“The Drupal Association exists to provide the logistical and financial foundation necessary to support the Drupal project’s exponential growth and to provide the Drupal project with new possibilities regarding infrastructure, marketing and funding. The Drupal Association will not be involved in decisions regarding the development or direction of the Drupal project itself.”

The Drupal Association’s founding members include project founder Dries Buytaert and key contributors Steven Wittens and Dries Knapen.
