Drupal.org team week notes #22

Drupal.org improvements

As usual, a lot of big and small deployments happened on Drupal.org during the past 2 weeks. RTBC patches are now being automatically re-tested (thanks jthorson!). Module index page is back, as well as full pager on issue listings, except for text search pages (thanks drumm!).

There is a new block available in your Dashboard on Drupal.org - “Your security issues”. The block will display the issues you have access to on security.drupal.org. Thanks mlhess and drumm!

Drupal.org team week notes #21

Drupal.org improvements

During the past two weeks we deployed a few Bluecheese issues (#2191021, #2194421, #1195950), accessibility issues (#2095969), Project issues (#2195621, #2184161, #2125307, #2193857, #2159429. Thanks to LewisNyman, mgifford, cafuego, tim.plunkett, trobey and Mark Carver for working on them.

Discovery process for supporting Drupal core semantic versioning

Per recent decision in the core issue queue, Drupal core will use a semantic versioning system (3-digit version numbers, e.g. 8.0.1, 8.2.0, etc.) starting with Drupal 8. This means that significant parts of the Drupal.org infrastructure will need to be adjusted to support the new versioning system.

Drupal.org team week notes #20

Drupal.org improvements

Last week we deployed a major improvement for issue page workflow: https://drupal.org/node/2159813. The issue edit form is back on the issue page, instead of the standard comment form. Huge thanks to webchick, Mark Carver, sanchiz, Bojhan, joachim and everyone else who worked on the issue.

Drupal.org team week notes #19


Recently we published our Tech team plan for the first quarter of 2014. To ensure that we are not only telling you about our plans, but also update on the progress as we go, we are bringing back our traditional bi-weekly ‘week notes’ posts. Welcome to the first week notes of 2014!

Drupal 7 upgrade cleanup

We managed to fix quite a few critical and major issues in the past 2 weeks. Project usage and download statistics are now fixed, text search is improving...

Tech Team plan for the first quarter of 2014

There is never a shortage of things to do on Drupal.org and that’s never been more true than right now. We have D7 upgrade clean up to finish, as well as variety of improvements that were on hold during the upgrade. We want you to know what our tech team is focused on and where we’re spending our time, so here are some of the pieces in our first quarter roadmap.

Drupal.org downtime: survival stories

It’s been almost two weeks since the D7 upgrade deployment day. During all of that time we were heads down fixing follow up issues and working on stabilizing performance. Now is a good time to make a quick pause, and look back at how we actually survived the downtime!

Drupal.org D7 upgrade is live: next steps

As you know, the Drupal.org D7 upgrade went live last week. The deployment itself went as planned, without major complications. In the past few days however we are experiencing problems with the Drupal.org performance.

There are a few reasons for that:
