Building and managing an enterprise Drupal distribution
The Australian National University lets every business area down to individual researchers operate their own "ANU" websites. In 2010, four Colleges (faculties) started working on a shared Drupal distribution for the University, "Acton". Drupal now powers the majority of ANU websites.
This case study will look at:
- major challenges of building and managing a distribution
- the importance of building the ANU Drupal community
- reflections on managing a Drupal distribution
- using Features in distributions
- shared content using RDF
We'll also look at a specific implementation of the distribution for the 20+ business areas in the Colleges of Science, using Aegir.
If you are interested in this presentation, Fiona Bush has also proposed a session dealing with a specific implementation using parts of this distribution.
