In an effort to continue the velocity of work on Drupal 8 criticals from the Ghent criticals sprint, we've taken it upon ourselves to get together for at least one hour each Friday to focus on Drupal 8 criticals
Read on to find out what we got up to in the first week, but also how you can get involved.
Critical Office Hours
At the time of writing, there are 85 remaining criticals for Drupal 8. Of these 53 were updated in the last week, so as a community, we're swarming on these remaining issues to get us to a Drupal 8.0.0 release candiate.
So in order to make working on these issues as accessible as possible, every Friday from 12 noon to 1 pm GMT + 10 (Brisbane time) we're meeting online in #drupal-au to work on Drupal 8 criticals.
Week one recap
During week one we worked on four issues as follows:
- De-fork jQuery Joyride and update to latest stable release - now fixed
- Delete forum data on uninstall - now fixed
- Bulk operations does not respect entity access - now fixed
- Stop auto-creating FieldItems on mere reading of $entity->field[N] - still at needs review
So three fixed criticals in the first week is not too shabby in my books, two of those were a direct result of our work, and the third one had a couple of new patches and has since gone in.
If you're interested in helping, say hi on #drupal-au to Jibran Ijaz (jibran), David Forbes (dashaf), Magda Kostrzewa (miss_phing), Kim Pepper (kimb0) or Myself (larowlan) and let us know you'll be coming along.
