Contrib Committee status review for December 2015
The last month of the year was rather slow with many of us taking vacation time to spend with our respective families.
Our clients love to contribute to open source
Along the way a few of our clients needed some work that we were able to contribute back:
- Joshua Boltz fixed a major UI problem in the Advertserve Ads module’s admin form.
- Michelle Cox wrote a fix for an undefined-variable error in the Skinr module.
- For another client, I added a number of additional mobile and IE-specific meta tags to the Metatag module, and fixed a problem with the double-encoding of tokens.
We love to contribute to open source
With Drupal 8 out the door we continued to spend time on the clock making progress porting modules:
- Alex McCabe continued to work on the Third Party Wrappers module.
- David Younker continued work on the Instagram API module.
- Mark Casias put some time into planning the jPlayer module port.
- Michelle continued working on the Author Pane module.
- Michelle and I continued work on Metatag, and released 1.0-beta3 which adds a new global configuration system written by Juampy Novillo Requena of Lullabot.
We also don’t want to let our D6 and D7 sites, and modules, fall by the wayside and so continued working on contributions for these older releases:
- Alex worked on a bug in Features Extra and another bug in core.
- Michelle put a lot of time into dealing with spam on drupal.org and groups.drupal.org.
- Ryan Gibson put some time into a new module for mobile-friendly site maintenance.
- I did some triage on the Bean module’s issue queue, rerolled a fix for a bug in the Date module, and continued to improve a fix for Metatag’s integration with the Internationalization module.
Not to keep our sights too narrow, we also got off the Drupal island and worked on some other Open Source projects:
- Derek DeRaps worked on some improvements to the Atom text editor.
- Joe Stewart submitted a pull request to Ansible to fix an issue with Composer and it was accepted.
Bring on the new year!
After an amazing year, with Drupal 8 finally out the door and a few D8 site launches under our belts, we’re excited about 2016 and look forward to many more chances to give back to Drupal and other open source projects.
