Is Drupal, in many respects the main ‘competitor’ to WordPress, in crisis?
According to Daniel F. Kudwien, it most certainly is, and it makes interesting reading when comparing and contrasting with the current status of WordPress.
Kudwien outlines the development of Drupal over the last couple of years, specifically pointing out that:
in January 2011, Drupal 7 was released with some 300 unresolved major bugs
200 previously critical and major bugs were then demoted to normal
as of August 2011 Drupal has 4153 unresolved bugs (22,181 total)
a vast number of users are stuck on Drupal 6, with no progress on Drupal 8
