When I first started my funding drive, my plan was to get funded through feature freeze and then evaluate where things stand.

I figured that since feature freeze has now come and gone, it would be a good time to offer an update on the status of CMI.


One the third day of DrupalCon Sydney, all the Drupal 8 initiative owners conducted a Q&A with attendees in Sydney.

A couple months ago I wrote about the funding I have gotten for CMI, and this is an update on our progress and next steps.

Progress in 2012

Drupal is in an interesting place right now. For the last few months I've been saying that we have all the pressures of a large commercial software project with none of the resources.

Working on core takes time. Writing patches takes time, reviewing them takes time, just keeping track of what all is going on takes time. Most of us are volunteers but the most valuable thing that I lack as an initiative lead is raw hours.

Today Dries committed the initial implementations of a central API for managing configuration in Drupal 8.

The first alpha release of Services 3 has just been rolled and should be available for download on the project page by the time you read this.

I'm currently chasing a wild goose of an idea in Drupal 7, and found myself in a situation where it would be really convenient to run the Drupal install script through a debugger.
