From time to the time, the topic of forming a new slogan for Drupal is coming up again and again. Admittedly "Community plumbing" might be a bit worn out. One could only wonder if a new slogan is part of the drupal.org redesign underway now or not.
A prominent thread on groups.drupal.org lately was the Slogan Proposal Wiki which highlighted opinions from lot of people. It is a great thread which spawned Lullabot's "Do It With Drupal" conference brand even. Christefano suggested "Drupal | Making waves", which I think is driven home on recent mockups by Roy Scholten (not sure he made up this version) as Drupal, make waves. I think this gives more personality (ie. you make the waves, not Drupal), even if it has some negative connotations. The Cambridge International Dictionary of Idioms defines "makes waves" as "to change an existing situation in a way which causes problems or upsets people.". So this might not be the best option on earth, but to me it sounds disrupting in a great and uplifting way.
In related news, it looks like drupal.org's new face might be a Netvibes like "drag and drop-it yourself" widget screen as suggested by many people. This sounds great! And it brings Ken's MySite module into direct spotlight. This is what is closest to what we need to have drag and drop blocks with configurable content, even if it needs some user experience love. The only slight problem with it (for drupal.org) is that its current roadmap calls for alignment with the Panels API, through sharing common parts with the Panels module (which has "similar" features but for site admins, not users). What we have seen in delays to drupal.org functionality to perfect Views, it might indeed be useful to change plans at this point for MySite and do a straight port to Drupal 6 before remodeling it based on Panels. I think we will see some interesting debates here again on sooner deployable drupal.org functionality versus even better architected and generally reusable module code.
