Community Exchange System (CES), a free software service that helps communities manage and exchange resources, is to be migrated to Drupal in 2016. The network currently consists of over 800 more or less active communities in 107 countries, and the software has so far been translated into 30 languages. Most of the software will be published open source, as a Drupal 8 distribution called Eserai, and several customised deployments are already planned.

In the medium term, more resources will be sought to bring together these deployments into one decentralised network, and to build a free, open source phone application suitable for recording and mobilising community activities.

Communities wanting to be part of a global, decentralised exchange network can create accounts on this website. Drupal engineers wishing to support this long-term effort should contact
