Our community does amazing things together and they deserve to have the best working environment for collaboration. At the Drupal Association, we strive to create these open and collaborative environments at DrupalCon and on Drupal.org.
We recently became aware that a community member violated our speaker agreement at DrupalCon. The Drupal Association removed the video from the DrupalCon event site and the Drupal Association YouTube channel and we are determining additional actions. The community member acknowledged that they broke the speaker agreement and is cooperating with the Drupal Association as we take action.
We apologize that this content was shared. It didn’t create the best environment for our community to thrive and we will do better. We are looking at ways to enhance our process to avoid situations like this from happening again.
We also heard from the community discussion findings that were provided this summer, that the community needs a better understanding of the roles and responsibilities for volunteers that work on Drupal Association programs. The Drupal Association is working to define what is expected of each role and policies for managing situations when expectations are not met. We are working on developing a clear outline of these and you can expect to see them finalized by February 2018.
