The information below will eventually be integrated into the project book.  

Project Overview: Upgrade Drupal from Version 5 (D5) to Version 6 (D6).

There are four parts to this.

  1. Ongoing maintenance as needed
  2. Changes to D5  that must be done to convert to D6
  3. Convert to D6
  4. Deferred future projects

Any proposed changes need to be assigned to one of these categories. Most of 1 should be assigned to 4 with both 1 and 4 having low priority.

Design rules

  1. Record every change in configuration or code
  2. Minimal code changes
  3. Watch D7 as we will eventually have to convert to it, i.e. don't do things that will require significant rework.
