UML diagrams and RUP processes are usuallly found when you do Software
Engineering (with capital S and E), usually created by a single-company (or
consortium) to address the needs of a client - aka requirements (which is
one of the first phases).

Drupal is an open-source community effort that was slowly built up by the
needs of the individual developers, and a that-seems-a-good-idea mentality.

That I know of, there's no UML diagrams of Drupal, though you can try to
reverse-engineer the PHP source code to derive some diagrams. Unfortunately,
Drupal doesn't use the OO aspects of PHP, which will probably result in some
very confusing diagrams.

As to the RUP documentation, good luck in creating that post-facto. It's
possible that the General Dynamics people that were prime contractors for
the whitehouse.gov project developed something like that, but I doubt that
it covers more than the costumisations required for that site.. You can
always ask them for those docs... :)
