  • The number of actual contributors has been going up. \n
  • As Drupal’s popularity skyrockets, more and more users are creating tickets and making suggestions in the issue queue. And it’s impossible for contributors to keep up.\nLast summer, 8 months after Drupal 7 was released, there were 9000 open issues in the core issue queue.\n
