Drupal Give: Recent Activity
I removed some slow and limited value code from some example code that Drush ships with. Many folks include this code in their shell and we were slowing down their environment a little (mine included). Its gone now. See http://drupalcode.org/project/drush.git/commit/0037f8f
Over the weekend of 9th-10th March, 2013, a Drupal Global Sprint was held to inspire people to work on Drupal 8. I upgraded one of my contributed modules, Pathinfo, to Drupal 8, and wrote a tutorial on the process on Drupal.org: D7 to D8 tutorial: pathinfo module.
We organized a Drupal 8 core sprint at the Burlington office as part of the Global Sprint Weekend. Participants from Acquia and the regional community worked to review and document Drupal 8 API changes, begin Drupal 8 module upgrades to test core APIs, and experiment with improvements to the user interface for the Blocks and Layouts Initiative.
This patch involves removing hook_url_outbound_alter() and replacing it with a series of outbound path processors. It is the final step towards the goal of unifying the url generator from the routing system with the url() function for generating urls from paths. As the latter is one of the most widely used functions in Drupal, changing how it works is not without many consequences. The work today focused on fixing outstanding test failures - the number of failures is now at 5.
I was one of the lead organizers for DrupalCamp NJ, as well as a speaker. This was the 2nd annual camp in Princeton. We had approximately 90% of the 246 registered attendees show up, and received overwhelmingly positive feedback. Sessions, slides, and audio or screen captures are posted at http://www.drupalcampnj.org/sessions
Worked on reviewing the security team processes and progress. Assigned several issues and tried to keep Drupal secure.
I worked on the core patch "Allow to override the image toolkit's global JPEG/PNG quality value" and it finally passed the automated test.
