Sorry for the delay in mailing the list since I took over maintainership
of Drupal, things have been very busy.
The main issue has been another security update for Drupal. It's waiting
review, and should be released soon.
So, a quick overview of what I'd like to see happen.
Drupal is a fairly large system, and I think it lends itself well to
being collaboratively maintianed. So, I propose that the official
maintainer is the mailing list :)
2. Upgrade paths
This is fairly interesting in Drupal's case. For more info on this, and
generally, see http://drupal.org/node/65922
So, I'm going to take the previous maintainer's advice:
Create separate versions for major upstream releases: drupal4.5,
drupal4.6, drupal4.7. Don't waste time trying to do automatic
database updates -- that Simply Won't Work.
3. Package versions
Drupal 4.5 has been officially dropped from support, and most new work
is going into 4.7+
I would like to get 4.7 packaged and into etch ASAP, especially as 4.5
isn't supported under PHP5.
What needs to be done now:
Create a 4.7 package :)
I've created pkg-drupal-commits at lists.alioth.debian.org  for commits
to subversion, and I'd liek to carry on using subversion for package
A. Because it breaks the logical sequence of discussion
Q. Why is top posting bad?
