As if one is not enough: Not only I made a tour in real life already (and that is why I passed that news), but I also can do another one now: A Tour of the Redesigned Drupal.org. This is not just a change of the facade, this is a complete redesign (linked: Homepage). And in that tour is an in depth report of the changes and motivation.
The new Drupal.org site is the result of many years of hard work. It’s marvelous when that work finally reaches completion, and when people are excited by what is produced. But it is more than that. The result is not just a better Drupal.org site, but a better way of working together and a stronger, more dedicated team. It’s an excellent foundation on which to build.
Dries Buytaert; Drupal.org redesign launched, and why it matters (21 Oct 2010)
Looks nice and clear so far. The logo isn’t that playful any longer. Bonne Chance!
