I can't gurentee how much time I'll have to devote, but I want to help where I can. Count me in as part of the backend team. Just to clarify, we're moving to the current 5.x branch, right?

Hi all

Every time CMS choice comes up here, I've seen a fair (and growing)  
number of people with positive stories to tell about Drupal.

As you may know, www.evolt.org runs Drupal[1], but it's not really  
progressed since we migrated to it nearly 4 years ago.

So, what we'd really like is some help in a fairly major update, which  
will cover some or all of:
1) Version update (we're running on an embarrassingly old version rn)  
- first target: 5.11
2) New theme (or at worst: the same one migrated working on the  
updated install)
3) New/improved functionality through modules
4) Other usability/IA improvements - we're very much open to  

So, if you have experience with Drupal, or anything else above that  
can be achieved with Drupal, and would like to help out, drop me a  
mail off-list, and I'll get you added to the team!

[1] Not that there aren't other fine CMSs out there, but given that
a) there appear to be more Drupal people here than anything else
b) migrating to Joomla/Rails/Django/whatever would involve a huge  
effort in itself, and I'd rather focus on actual benefits as above
we're not actively looking to do that. If you have a strong argument  
in favour of something else, bring it on, but as a longer term
