The mission of the Drupal.org Content Working Group (DCWG) is to make sure that the content on Drupal.org websites is compelling, well-curated, and relevant for all of its various target audiences and supports a content marketing strategy that serves site visitors and generates revenue to make Drupal.org sustainable.
The DCWG acts as a group to maintain the processes around product messaging, content moderation, and user experience elements of the Drupal.org websites. The DCWG is appointed by the Drupal Association. Together the Drupal Association and DCWG collaborate on strategy, priorities, and implementation.
The DCWG manages and is responsible for overall content strategy of Drupal.org websites, maintaining policies around the major content areas on Drupal.org, including the front page, case studies, marketplace, persona-centric landing pages, and Drupal Planet. They also manage the overall look and feel and voice of the website, including its information architecture and design elements.
The DCWG uses an iterative process, based on data-driven analysis, with the goal to constantly improve the content on Drupal.org and to optimize key pages for traffic, usability, and revenue.
The DCWG must establish a process that uses timely decision-making and iterative improvements. The DCWG should work closely with all other working groups, as well as Drupal Association staff, and Branding and Marketing committee, in order to determine overall needs and priorities for Drupal.org content.
The DCWG works within the budget provided by the Drupal Association, and presents a yearly plan with cost breakdown for Board approval.
The DCWG aims to be as transparent as possible by documenting its decisions publicly.
Individuals who do not agree with a given DCWG decision may escalate to the Drupal Association staff and/or their designate(s), who will review the decision and can choose to either uphold or alter it. In the meantime, the decision of the DCWG stands.
