Post Syndicated from jake original https://lwn.net/Articles/720655/rss

The Drupal content management system
(CMS) has been an open-source tool of choice for many site owners for
well over a decade now. Over that time, it has been overseen by its
original developer, Dries Buytaert, who is often referred to as the
benevolent dictator for life (BDFL) for the . Some recent events
have led a sizable contingent in the Drupal to question his
leadership, however. A request that a prominent developer leave the Drupal
community, apparently over elements of his private life rather than any
Drupal-related misstep, has led to something of an outcry in that
community—it may well lead to a change in the governance of the project.
