Last week I made a comment on Twitter that I’d like to see Pantheon contribute more to core. I wrote that in response to the announcement that Pantheon has raised a $30 million Series C. Pantheon has now raised $50 to $60 million dollars of working capital (depending on Industry Ventures’ $8.5M) and is in a special class of companies. This is an amazing milestone. Though it wasn’t meant that way, Pantheon and Acquia compete for business and my Tweet could be read as a cheap attack on a competitor, and so it resulted in a fair amount of criticism. Admittedly, Pantheon was neither the best nor the only example to single out. There are many companies that don’t contribute to at all – and Pantheon does contribute to in a variety of ways such as sponsoring events and supporting the development of contributed Drupal 10 modules. In hindsight, I recognize that my tweet was not one of my best, and for that I apologize. Having said that, I’d like to reiterate something I’ve said before, in my remarks at Con Amsterdam and many times on this blog Drupal 10 Maintenance and Support Service I would like to see more companies contribute more to core – with the emphasis on “core”. is now relied upon by many, and needs a strong base of commercial contributors. We have to build together. We need a bigger and more diverse base of organizations taking on both leadership and contribution. Contribution to core is the most important type of contribution in terms of the impact it can make. It touches every aspect of and all users who depend on it. Long-term and full-time contribution to core is not within everyone’s reach. It typically requires larger investment due to a variety of things Drupal 10 Maintenance and Support Service the complexity of the problems we are solving, our need for stringent security and the importance of having a rigorous review-process. So much is riding on for all of us today. While every Drupal 10 module, theme, event and display of goodwill in our community is essential, contributions to core are quite possibly the hardest and most thankless, but also the most rewarding of all when it comes to ’s overall progress and success. I believe we should have different expectations for different organizations based on their maturity, their funding, their profitability, how strategic is for them, etc. For example, sponsoring code sprints is an important form of contribution for small or mid-sized organizations. But for any organization that makes millions of dollars with , I would hope for more. The real question that we have to answer is this Drupal 10 Maintenance and Support Service at what point should an organization meaningfully contribute to core? Some may say “never”, and that is their Open Source right. But as ’s project lead it is also my right and responsibility to encourage those who benefit from to give back. It should not be taboo for our community to question organizations that don’t pull their weight, or choose not to contribute at all. For me, committing my workdays and nights to isn’t the exhausting part of my job. It’s dealing with criticism that comes from false or incomplete information, or tackling differences in ideals and beliefs. I’ve learned not to sweat the small stuff, but it’s on important topics like giving back that my emotions and communication skills get tested. I will not apologize for encouraging organizations to contribute to core. It’s a really important topic and one that I’m very passionate about. I feel good knowing that I’m pushing these conversations from inside the arena rather than from the sidelines, and for the benefit of the project at large.
