Drupal Give: Recent Activity
Helped to open source the codebase for the Drupal Gardens mobile app. Decided its license, and made a process for copyright assignment to Acquia.
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.
