Who We AreTop Shelf Modules is a pivot of Drupal Anywhere. We see a need for a business solution to support module maintainers. We experienced the ecosystem of modules crumbling: modules abandoned, unfinished, unmanaged and a crew of discouraged, tired and unpaid maintainers. It seems that Drupal as a CMS is looking at a bleak future. One of Drupal’s main strengths is the power, compatability and number of modules available. Without this, Drupal will be challenged to compete for enterprise business.
Monetizing open-source in a manner that does not change the nature of open-source. This is a grassroots, community-driven process. Without community participation, contrib modules as they are today will impede Drupal’s adoption and retention.
