Drupal awarded OpenID Bounty!
OK, so I knew it was coming, but I'm super excited to announce that Drupal was amongst the first 3 projects to be awarded the $5000 USD bounty. The award comes for the work I was involved in bringing OpenID support to Drupal 6. Interestingly, Drupal was the only PHP-based application awarded in this initial round, the other two being Plone (written in Python) and DotNetNuke (written in VB.NET).
Before you start asking me for a beer, the money is being sent directly to the Drupal Association. :)
Thank you to the OpenID Foundation, specifically Scott Kveton, for putting together the bounty. And thanks to everyone in the Drupal community for continuing to be on the front-end of new technologies.
