Issue 181 - March, 19th 2015I'm happy to announce that TheWeeklyDrop has partnered with Drupal.org to syndicate our newsletter content in the new Drupal.org Newsletter. Nothing will really change for you, but this means many more people will be exposed to this newsletter. TheWeeklyDrop remains independent but I'm proud to be working with the Drupal Association to share the great resources of our community with more people each week.
You can now credit an organization with attribution for work on Drupal.org. This is a great thing.
The Drupal Association is creating a new Community Organizer Newsletter. If you organize a local group, camp, initiative or anything in between you might find it useful.
See what new features and improvements have been added to Drupal.org in the past month.
As many of you know, when I'm not producing this newsletter I work at Mediacurrent. We are very excited about the future with Code and Theory.
