A WordPress Agency Moves Away from Wordpress

Drupal distributions session by Omar Bickell at DrupalCamp Montreal

See also Hally Turner's notes on this presentation.

irakli and jmiccolis know more, this draws in part on their presentations.

install profiles are install time only
- run custom install tasks
- enable modules and themes

A lot of those on are old, not released, or unmaintained
