Paul Johnson: Dear Drupalists I need your help

Planet Drupal - 18 April 2017 - 3:02pm
Category:

Those who know me will be well aware that I am both a passionate cyclist. Last June I wrote a blog about cycling. It told the dreadfully sad tale of a cyclist who died close to my home following a road traffic incident. In just 24 hours the post had over 10,000 reads. This triggered me to take positive action, the result of which is my campaign "BeyondACyclist", which has backing and support from CyclingUK.

A totally volunteer effort (entirely inspired by my work with Drupal) BeyondACyclist has a groundswell of support and active participation from the likes of Three Degrees West film company, Cheshire Fire Service, Cheshire East Council, West Midlands Police, Christie Hospital, composer Brian Lane, script writer Craig Roderick (Southpaw Agency) and Phil Jones MBE Managing Director - Brother UK to name but a few. Plans are in advanced stages to produce an ambitious cinema quality short film, supporting studio portraits and action photography, social media campaign and distribution across a variety of mediums.

Why I am reaching out to you the Drupal community

Within the next few months we will have the film completed. But there is a final missing link. I need a website designed, built and themed to drive traffic towards. A site to serve as central focal point for all campaign activity. The place where all traffic will arrive be that from TV news, print media, social or offline. I cannot do all of this alone. I already have a lot on my plate!

I'm hoping someone in the Drupal community will be reading right now and feel this is a cause they would like to get involved with. Obviously Drupal 8, it will be high traffic as I have built excellent relations with media outlets including TV, print and social. And this is a global issue. In Ireland, across USA, Australia there are currently hot news stories about cycle safety and sadly more deaths. So don't think being outside the UK is a blocker, no.

I anticipate needing 2-3 individuals to complete the task - Designer, Site builder or Site builder and Themer (as separate roles). If you would like to discuss the idea further or are just plain interested in getting involved please use my contact form to reach me. And thank you in advance. Paul.

Platform.sh: Free SSL certificates for every project & every environment

Planet Drupal - 18 April 2017 - 12:16pm
Free SSL certificates for every project & every environment Crell Tue, 04/18/2017 - 19:16 New Features

At Platform.sh, we believe that all websites deserve to be secure, fast, and feature-rich, and that it should be easy to have all three. Secure has always meant that a site is encrypted using SSL, which is why we’ve never charged for an SSL certificate. Fast means using HTTP/2, which we added support for earlier this year, but most browsers only support HTTP/2 over SSL. And feature-rich means allowing the full range of newer web functionality such as geolocation, access to media devices, or notifications, many of which browsers are now only permitting over SSL connections. You know what? The modern web only works properly with SSL so let’s cut out the middleman. Let’s Encrypt everything.

We’re happy to announce automatic support for Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates on every production site on Platform.sh Professional, at no charge.

Starting today for all new projects, on every deploy we will automatically provision and install an SSL certificate for you using the free Let’s Encrypt service. You don’t have to do anything. It will just be there.

For existing projects, we're bringing that functionality online in batches to avoid overwhelming the Let's Encrypt servers. We expect to finish getting through them all within the next few weeks. If you're about to bring a site live and want to make sure you get Let's Encrypt functionality before that, just file a support ticket and we'll bump you to the front of the line.

Wait, what does this mean for my site?

If you currently just have HTTP routes defined in your routes.yaml file, then as of your next deploy HTTPS requests will be served as HTTPS requests rather than being redirected to HTTP. Both will “just work”.

If you want to serve your entire site over HTTPS all the time (and yes, you do), simply change all http:// routes in your routing file to be https://. That will automatically redirect HTTP requests to HTTPS going forward.

See the Routes section of the documentation for more details, but really, there’s not many details beyond that. It just works.

What about Platform.sh Enterprise?

Most Platform.sh Enterprise sites are served through a Content Delivery Network already, in which case the SSL certificate is handled by the CDN. This change has no impact on Platform.sh Enterprise customers.

Neat! So what should I do?

You don’t have to do anything. HTTPS just works now. As above, you can configure your site to use HTTPS exclusively by adding the letter "s" to your routes.yaml file in a few places. (We told you it was easy.)

Of course, now that you know your site will use SSL, you also know it will be using HTTP/2. All SSL-protected sites on Platform.sh use HTTP/2. HTTP/2 is supported by nearly 80% of web browsers in the world. That makes it safe, and a good investment, to start optimizing your site for HTTP/2, layering in HTTP/2-specific capabilities like server push, and so forth.

Secure, fast, feature-rich, and easy. Welcome to Platform.sh!

myDropWizard.com: Drupal 6 security update for CCK

Planet Drupal - 18 April 2017 - 11:05am

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Moderately Critical security release for the CCK module to fix an Access Bypass vulnerability.

CCK allows you to add custom fields to any content type.

The Node Reference sub-module had a bug where it could list the node titles of nodes that the user doesn't have access to.

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the CCK module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).

Drupal.org blog: What's new on Drupal.org? - March 2017

Planet Drupal - 18 April 2017 - 11:02am

Read our Roadmap to understand how this work falls into priorities set by the Drupal Association with direction and collaboration from the Board and community.

The Drupal Association team is gearing up for DrupalCon Baltimore. We're excited to see you there and we'll presenting a panel giving an update on our work since Dublin, and our plans for the coming months.

Drupal.org updates Project application revamp

As we announced in mid-March, new contributors on Drupal.org can now create full projects and releases! Contributors no longer have to wait in the project application queue for a manual review before they are able to contribute projects.

This is a very significant change in the Drupal contribution landscape, and it's something we approached carefully and will continue to monitor over the coming months. Drupal has always had a reputation for a high quality code, and we want to make sure that reputation is preserved with good security signals, project quality signals, and continued incentives for peer code review.

That said, we're very excited to see how this change opens up Drupal to a wider audience of contributors.

Please note that the removal of project applications to create full projects and releases means a change in the security advisory policy (see below for details).

Security Advisory Opt-in and new Security Signals for Projects Are you responsible for the security of your clients' Drupal sites?

Please note that Drupal's security advisory coverage policy has changed. Security advisory coverage for contributed projects is now only available for projects that have both opted in to receive coverage and made a stable release. You can see which projects have opted in by checking their project pages. If you have questions, please contact security@drupal.org.

Because users may now create full projects and releases without opting in to security advisory coverage, it's critically important that we provide good security signals to users evaluating projects on Drupal.org. This is why we've added a security coverage warning to projects that aren't opted in to coverage.

We've also:

2017 Community Elections Update

The 2017 elections for the community-at-large seat on the board were held successfully in March. Drupal Association community board elections are conducted with the Instant Runoff Voting system. This voting methodology requires that voters rank their preferred candidates on their ballot, and we've heard that this system has been somewhat unwieldy in the past.

Each year we try to improve the voter experience and so this year we deployed a new drag-and-drop ballot.

Finally, we want to congratulate our newest board member Ryan Szrama!

Better international datetime support throughout Drupal.org

Drupal.org has grown organically over the course of more than a decade, and as features have been built out they were not always consistent in their display of datetime information. While it sometimes makes sense to have a few different formats for displaying date and time, many of the formats in use were simply arbitrary historical decisions.

As a quality of life improvement, especially for users outside of the USA, we've standardized the datetime format used on Drupal.org. That format is: DD MMM YYYY - hh:mm (UTC±h). For example: 11 Aug 2016 - 16:42 (UTC+8)

DrupalCI CSS Lint check style results

When we implemented coding standards testing in DrupalCI in February we were not able to add CSS Lint testing until the CSSLint configuration file in core was fixed. That issue was fixed in late February and so we added CSSLint to support coding standards testing for CSS at the beginning of March.

Cleaning up coding standards results

The addition of coding standards results to DrupalCI means that Drupal.org is now storing even more test data about the code we test on Drupal.org. Our initial implementation of coding standards testing did not include clean up of older results, and so to preserve database space and testing resources, we implemented some clean-up routines in March. In particular we are now:

  • Cleaning up all results for closed issues
  • For custom one-off tests, keeping results for 30 days to match what is shown on project’s automated testing tab
  • For tests triggered on a schedule or commit, keeping the most recent per-environment per-branch, and keeping anything less than 24h old
Infrastructure Protecting Git services

We experienced some minor Git outages in March, due to malicious authentication attempts. To mitigate these issues in the future, we've implemented fail2ban rules to protect Git authentication. This should improve the stability and uptime of Git services for all developers on Drupal.org.

We want to thank Drupal.org infrastructure volunteer mlhess for his assistance with this.

Community Initiatives Contrib Documentation Migration

New tools for Documentation have been available on Drupal.org for more than half a year. While most of the core documentation has been migrated to the new system, we are still encouraging Contrib maintainers to migrate their docs.

To make it easier for contrib project maintainers to migrate their documentation to the new documentation tools, we've made two improvements:

———

As always, we’d like to say thanks to all the volunteers who work with us, and to the Drupal Association Supporters, who made it possible for us to work on these projects. In particular we want to thank:

If you would like to support our work as an individual or an organization, consider becoming a member of the Drupal Association.
