Over the past few months we've been consolidating our various domains (openngo.org, socialsourcefoundation.org) into one domain civicrm.org. We've also moved most of our infrastructure services from facilities in poland (a big thanx to michal, piotr and caltha.pl for setting this up and helping us grow) to our new hosting providers Electric Embers (they are incredibly helpful, very reasonable prices and do a great job serving the non-profit sector). Also a big thanx to the folks at Eggplant Active Media Cooperative who designed and implemented our new look and feel.
CiviCRM is community driven, and many resources are freely available to you. That said, contacting CiviCRM directly may not be the best way to get your question answered or your need fulfilled. Please use this page to find an appropriate person to get in contact with. If you are interested in hiring someone to work with you on your CiviCRM project, have a look at our listing of CiviCRM experts.

CiviNode is a module and API that exposes CiviCRM contacts, groups, and other CiviCRM object types to Drupal as nodes. It's designed to make CiviCRM easier to use and integrate with all of the Drupal tools and techniques you've come to know and love. For example, once you've mirrored a CiviCRM contact into Drupal, you will be able to:
* Catagorize it with taxonomies
* Attach event or location information
* Track what's happening with the contact with a work-flow
* Control the way it displays by theming it.

CiviCRM is getting a fair amount of acceptance internationally. You can read a one pager of case studies and other information.
Drupal provides a very strong taxonomy system to classify content. Contacts could benefit from that taxonomy functionality.
