While still a slightly slow month, September saw a slight increase in our contribution efforts over August.
We were very pleased to have several clients look to make improvements in modules their sites use:
- Nathan James contributed several improvements to the Alt Login Page module, making it much more useful.
- In the constant battle against spam, I worked on a patch to automatically enable the CAPTCHA module for all Webform nodes.
- Metatag received i18n improvements, a new token for outputting the current pager, new meta tags and a bunch more tests to help its stability.
While still down a bit over earlier in the year, we had just over forty-five hours of self-directed contributions for the month. Some of our primary achievements were:
- Bob Kepford ported his ShowMeYourEmail module to Drupal 7 and 8.
- Bob also worked on a patch to fix a bug in Webform Features and started looking into the Restful module.
- Dan Polant worked on some patches to improve the SAML SP module.
- David Younker did some triage on his Instagram Social Feed module’s issue queue.
- Matt Davis met up with some people while on vacation in Greece about collaborating on a service to help with the Syrian refugee crisis.
- Michelle Cox worked on the ongoing spam problem on gdo.
- Paul McKibben updated his Entity Reference Modal Select module to Drupal 8.0.0-beta12.
- Ryan Gibson worked on improvements to the SSO Multi Domain and ShareThis modules.
- The Twitter module had some additional releases to improve its stability.
- I also worked on various issues for the Panelizer and Metatag modules.
During October you’ll be able to find several of us out ‘n about:
- Carie Fisher, Matt Goodwin and I will be at NEDCamp in Providence, RI on the 10th.
- Chris Doherty, Chris Zietlow, Dante Taylor, Dave Terry, Derek DeRaps, Eric Huffman, James Rutherford, Josh Linard, Paul Chason, Paul McKibben, Ryan, Shellie Hutchens, Thomas Burke and Zack Hawkins – a huge portion of the company – are all going to DrupalCamp Atlanta on the 16th & 17th.
- Bob, Cheryl Little, David, Derek, Eric, Mario Hernandez and Mark Casias will be at BADCamp from the 22nd through the 25th.
More to come
There are several things in progress right now, including ongoing module ports to D8, and further stability improvements to existing D7 modules, hopefully some of these will see the light of day during October.
We’ll see you in the issue queues!
