The Good - hard data about Drop Guard's victory
Until today, Drop Guard performed 7370 updates for Drupal agencies and their clients all around the globe.
I've collected a bunch of articles for you, where Drupal agencies describe their processes, workflows and experience with the Drupal update release PSA-2018-001.
Hard facts: The update was announced one week earlier and released on March 28th between 18:00 and 19:30 UTC.
