Drupal Association blog: Contribution Recognition Committee Selected

Planet Drupal - 9 January 2020 - 9:56am

At DrupalCon Amsterdam we announced the formation of a Contribution Recognition Committee. The purpose of this committee is to recommend solutions for how we recognize contributions to the Drupal project made by both individual and organizational contributors, and to advise the Drupal Association on how to weight each type of contribution relative to the others.

We kicked off the process with this call to action, seeking volunteers to participate on the committee who represented a variety of personas within the Drupal community: 

We saw a tremendous response to this call to action, and the committee has now been assembled. The members are: 


Committee Chair: Mike Lamb

Mike Lamb has just completed his second term on the Drupal Association board. He has been a member of the Drupal community for 8 years and is the Vice President of Global Digital Platforms at Pfizer. He brings his perspective as a former board member, a leader of digital teams, and a representative of a large end-user of Drupal to the table. His particular interest is in finding ways to incentivize other end-user organizations to make contribution history part of their vendor selection process.

Committee Member: Tiffany Farriss

Tiffany Farriss has a long history of leadership and service in the Drupal community, and is the CEO and co-owner of Palantir.net. She served on the Drupal Association board for 9 years, most of those as Treasurer; chaired the organizing committee for DrupalCon Chicago in 2011; and has served in many other ways, most recently on the executive search committee for the new Drupal Association Executive Director. Tiffany has personal experience across many kinds of contribution, as well as leading Palantir to be a top contributing organization.

Committee Member: Ryan Szrama

Ryan Szrama is well known for his work on Drupal Commerce and for co-founding Centarro (formerly Commerce Guys) in 2009. He's been a member of the Drupal community for nearly 14 years, was elected by the community to serve on the Drupal Association Board of Directors in 2017, and has just been appointed to another 3-year term. He lends his perspective as a Drupal business leader and D.A. board member to committee discussions and is interested to see how the data we gather about contributions can be used in ways beyond just crediting contributors.

Committee Member: Stella Power

Stella Power is a respected leader in the Drupal community in Ireland and is the Managing Director of Annertech. In her almost 14-year journey with Drupal, she's done everything from contributing code to volunteering at and organizing local events, consistently serving as a volunteer organizer of DrupalCon and Trivia Night quiz master. She provides the committee with her extensive experience in all of these areas - and as someone with connections to contributors around the world.

Committee Member: Jacob Rocowitz

Jacob Rockowitz maintains the Webform module for Drupal 8, as an independent Drupal consultant. Jacob has extensive experience collaborating with dozens if not hundreds of developers because of the wide usage of Webform, and he has pioneered a number of efforts to improve the sustainability of open source. He brings a unique perspective as a sole proprietor, as well as the knowledge gained from these sustainability experiments. One aspect of this project that is of particular importance to Jake is ensuring that the system incentivizes the quality of contributions, not just their quantity.

Committee Member: Rakhi Mandhania

Rakhi Mandhania is a Project Manager Colab Cooperative and co-founder of the DrupalCampus Ambassador Program. For more than six years in the Drupal community Rakhi has been a frequent attendee at local events in India, as well as international events like DrupalCon in Asia, North America, and Europe. Rakhi brings the perspective of Drupal users in the higher education space, as well as her experience as a project manager.

Committee Member: Paul Johnson

Paul Johnson has been working with Drupal since 2006 and is the Drupal Director at CTI Digital. Much of his client work is focused on the nonprofit world, and he brings that experience as well as knowledge of how to encourage for-profit, closed organizations to become more open. Among his many contributions to the project, Paul has focused on international social media efforts, including promotion from the @Drupal Twitter handle, and initiatives like #CelebrateDrupal8. His more recent experience includes work on the Promote Drupal initiative, and specifically the Drupal pitch deck. His passion lies in helping the Drupal project to realise the potential of its scale, ensuring contributions of all forms and scale are recognised and valued in particular beyond code.


These committee members are by no means the only community members who will be involved in the process. Six people are not enough to represent the breadth of diversity in our community. This is why the committee, both collectively and individually, will be seeking out feedback from every corner of our community to feed this process.

They'll also be working closely with the Drupal Association itself, particularly myself (Tim Lehnen) as CTO and maintainer of the system, and Rachel Lawson as our community liaison who already has tremendous insight from the community feedback she's gathered on this subject to date.

The committee will be meeting regularly over the next several months, with the goal of reporting significant progress and first recommendations at DrupalCon Minneapolis in May of 2020.

groups.drupal.org frontpage posts: Drupal 9 meetings now every Monday at 7pm UTC, help us prepare for beta!

Planet Drupal - 9 January 2020 - 9:34am

We started the "All things Drupal 9" meetings all the way back in October 2018 to start preparing for the new major release. Now in 2020, the year of Drupal 9, it was natural to make the meeting happen every Monday given the target dates coming up fast.

Contributed project maintainers, site owners, core developers are all welcome. If you are planning a Drupal 9 project for later in the year, this is your place as well. We open the floor with equal opportunity for people to propose topics, so we can cover your pressing questions as well! Join at 7pm UTC in the #d9readiness channel on Drupal Slack any Monday. The next meeting will be on January 13th, 2020.

We've been promoting Drupal 9's June 3rd 2020 target release date a lot, but that can only happen if the Drupal 9.0.0 beta requirements are all done by the end of February 2020, which is coming up real fast. There are still a lot to do and we need your help! If that does not happen, then the release will happen in August or December. While that would give less time for Drupal 8 users to update, we cannot compromise on the stability of Drupal 9 out of the gate.

Check out the detailed alternate timelines at https://www.drupal.org/core/release-cycle-overview

Centarro: Drupal Commerce 2.x: 2019 year in review

Planet Drupal - 9 January 2020 - 8:30am

Last year was a very productive for Drupal Commerce. We saw continued growth in overall usage, community contribution, and core feature availability. We’ve got big plans for 2020 but first wanted to pause to reflect on what we accomplished in 2019.

A year of growth

We started last year with 7,000 reported installs. Since then, we’ve gained another 3,000 - a 40% increase! The number of community members on Drupal Slack (in the #commerce channel) grew from 1,000 to 1,560. The number of listed payment gateways, a metric we use to track expansion to markets around the globe, grew from 90 to 138 with more on the way.

Copy protect video on Drupal web pages. This module enables the upload and insertion of encrypted CopySafe Video files into Drupal posts and pages from the Drupal page editor.

Search API Fulltext Translations

New Drupal Modules - 9 January 2020 - 2:27am

This module provides a Search API processor to add all translations to the indexed values for all fulltext fields. This allows for multilingual searching,

For example: There is one piece of content with two translations: en and de. The en translation has the title 'Result' and the de translation has the title 'Ergebnis'.
When the search results are only showing the en translations of content, with the fulltext translation processor enabled,
a fulltext search for "Ergebnis" will return the en version of the content, as "Ergebnis" is an indexed value against this field.

Drupal Association blog: Annual update of the DrupalCon Code of Conduct - Call for Proposals

Planet Drupal - 9 January 2020 - 2:10am

Over the last two years, we have managed to make some significant improvements to the DrupalCon Code of Conduct (CoC) so that it:

  1. Is more clear what is and is not acceptable behavior
  2. Details ways to raise issues through to the CoC Team for action
  3. Lists exactly who on the CoC Team handles issues
  4. Requires leaders — such as speakers, sponsors, etc. — to be held to the highest standards of all
  5. Explains the consequences of unacceptable behavior.

Thank you to everyone who has been involved, both staff and community members, for their work.

We have also taken the opportunity to train members of Drupal Association staff in CoC management through the course provided by Sage Sharp at OtterTech, organised by the Drupal Community Working Group. If you organise events, we highly recommend attending this online course in 2020.

No Code of Conduct can ever be considered “final”, however, and the Drupal Association have a process of making a release of a new DrupalCon Code of Conduct in the first quarter of each year, including any approved updates collected during they previous year.

It is that time again to call upon the Drupal Community to propose any refinements they see beneficial, by creating issues in the project issue queue. Anyone with a Drupal.org user account can create an issue and you do not need technical expertise to do so.

You will notice that I have already raised one issue, related to adding caste as a protected characteristic alongside others such as gender and race.

I look forward to reviewing your proposed refinements and continuing to build and maintain a world class Code of Conduct for our world class tech conference.

Search API Workspaces

New Drupal Modules - 9 January 2020 - 1:33am

This module provides a Search API datasource plugin, fields and filter to index workspace specific content entities.
It creates items with the ID pattern of {entity_id}:{langcode}:{revision_id}. The functionality included focuses on inherited content from parent workspaces,
providing a workspace association field and filter to allow filtering based on the currently selected workspace, and return all associated workspace revisions.

Entity Change

New Drupal Modules - 8 January 2020 - 11:24pm

This module provides the plugin framework to make arbitrary checks on updated
content entities (node, term, user etc) to see if they have been changed.

See the node change plugins provided as examples.

The module entities only work on content entities, because they have an
"original" entity attached when they go through the entity update hooks, this
allows us to compare fields in an arbitrary way.

Plugins should specify precisely which entities they deal with.

This module does nothing on its own.
