The drop is always movingYou know that saying about standing on the shoulders of giants? Drupal is standing on a huge pile of midgetsAll content management systems suck, Drupal just happens to suck less.Popular open source software is more secure than unpopular open source software, because insecure software becomes unpopular fast.

Introducing the IMP

Submitted by nk on Sat, 2013-10-05 05:55

WHAT: Import API in Drupal 8, based on the Migrate project. Drupal 6 and 7 import using this API based on the Drupal-to-Drupal data migration project. Read and comment on Mike Ryan's thoughts at
WHERE: The first big sprint is planned at BADcamp. PNWDS will likely host some informal discussions, perhaps a BoF. There is a sandbox (only some experiments right now) and a discussion group.
WHEN: PNWDS is Oct 5-6 and BADcamp is October 24-27.
WHO: Mike Ryan, chx, Melissa Anderson and YOU. Get in contact with chx if you want to help. Please add yourself to the sprint attendance spreadsheet if you are coming to the sprint at BADcamp.
WHY: So that Drupal 6 sites can move directly to Drupal 8. (And because the current upgrade path is unmaintainable.)
HOW: The battle plan is that once the interfaces are in place and agreed upon, the sources and the destinations can be written in parallel. By BADcamp, hopefully we will have a tasklist up and Melissa will coordinate the tasks and the contributors.
