Already there. I've been working with Drupal since early V4, have
attended Toronto's first two Drupalcons and been a subscriber to the
Drupal consultant mailing list for years. My drupal.org ID is "el56". I
consider it simultaneously one of the most powerful and most frustrating
pieces of software I've ever used.


Based on what I understand so far, I consider Moodle and Drupal
complementary. I'd never suggest Drupal itself as a courseware authoring
tool, in fact I would consider it less suited than even a decent wiki
package. Having said that, I intend to use Drupal to perform all of the
surrounding infrastructure tasks. I haven't yet looked at what kind of
modules may exist to perform any useful glue between the two packages,
but I see that some exist (still in development status for Drupal 6).

I know... my order for it is in process. :-)
