eXtension Moves to Drupal

eXtension is moving to the use of Drupal for content development. Thanks to the input provided by many CoP members, the eXtension staff decided in early August to make this change, and has named a Drupal Implementation Team to shepherd the conversion from using MediaWiki for content development to using Drupal. It will also result in fewer eXtension websites. Existing sites to be consolidated into Drupal include the CoP wiki (cop.extension.org), the About wiki, (extension.org/wiki), the FAQ system (faq.extension.org), and the events system (events.extension.org). While the detailed plan for implementation has not yet been fully developed, it is expected that this conversion will last well into 2011 to accomplish. A more complete plan will be shared in November.
