Congratulations to David Strauss, Four Kitchens co-founder and Drupal scalability guru, who was elected yesterday as a Permanent Member of the Drupal Association.
David’s goals as a member focus largely on improvements to infrastructure, community-building, and reaching out to other open-source projects. Details can be found in his application:
What are the primary goals you would like to work on?
I would like to advance the infrastructure for development and sprints by working with the community to drive development and deployment of next-generation (read: not CVS) tools, both for issue tracking and version control. I would like to participate in discussions surrounding the membership software for Drupal Association membership, including CiviCRM (the current tool) and alternatives. I would like to work with major free culture and free software organizations to establish partnerships.
What strategy will you employ in order to accomplish said goals?
I would like to host a series of official online meetings to discuss options for development infrastructure and prepare an Association-endorsed roadmap. For membership management, I would use my experience implementing and managing CiviCRM and other non-profit-focused tools to inform and guide the Association’s decisions. For partnership building, I would draw on my relationships with other projects and developers to start productive discussions about shared goals and their projects’ stake in Drupal’s success.
Making the web a better place to teach, learn, and advocate starts here...
