Kieran Lal (aka Amazon) talks about the genesis of the Core Developer's Summit that happened before DrupalCon San Francisco. The summit was meant to gather the developers who participate in creating Drupal core to have a more intimate space to talk about some of the issues around the Drupal community and the future development of Drupal 8. Participants were encouraged to submit a set of slides proposing an issue to be discussed at the summit, and it's from those topics were chosen. Lal also talks more about some of the issues that were discusses and breakout sessions that happened during the summit. There is another core developer summit happening before DrupalCon Copenhagen 2010 on Sunday, August 22nd.
