You are invited to attend Drupal Camp Chicago on October Friday 24 & Saturday 25 2008.
For over 2 years Chicago Drupal has truly highlighted the benefits of an open source initiative. We have built resourceful bridges between many local Chicago establishments including non-profits, entrepreneurs, Drupal development companies, independent consultants, hobbyist, and others in the mid-west. Our goal for this Drupal Camp is to bring everyone together for open communication, education, fun, and industry networking.
Hope no one minds if I start up a brainstorming / drafting wiki for the next Newsletter. The idea is not to be comprehensive, but to take special highlights of major events/ideas that's in the Drupal zeitgeist. I like the new style "links leading to individual articles" newsletter where the landing page is a teaser/table of contents of sorts. We can break up the contents into sections later when we know how much stuff we have.

Any seasoned Drupaller will tell you that in addition to Drupal being great software, it's also a great community.
There are a number of folks in the Drupal community that "get it" and make consistent contributions. The following interview is dedicated to uncovering a few of the tips, tricks and practices used by one of those individuals to Get Drupal Done.
For the Summer newsletter:
As Drupal matures, so do the sites that it powers. The following are but a small sampling of sites that have been recently built or re-launched with Drupal. Each of these case studies, published since this spring, are well worth reading, to see how other developers do their magic, and to see a tiny bit of what Drupal is possible of doing.Read more
We're planning to mail the summer issue of the Drupal Newsletter on Tuesday. I'll be spending the day on Tuesday helping to polish what's in there and making sure things are fresh. We'll have a focus on Drupalcon Szeged.
To make this issue more manageable for readers, I plan to divide it into teasers, linking to the original articles on d.o and other sites.
So if you want anything in there for the last minute, now's the time!
Security team update
We recently released SA-2008-063 for multiple contributed modules. This was due to incorrect implementation of hook_menu in Drupal 6.
'access callback' => user_access('administer nodes'),
This evaluates to
TRUE and leaves the page wide open to any user who might come across it.
'access callback' => 'user_access',
'access arguments' => array('administer nodes'),
or even more simply:
ok, to wrap up this newsletter, we need to grab 3-4 of those posts, get permission, and stick teasers in the body. i'd also like to have links to any info about the video from the conference. i've only watched that peripherally; anyone know the status of that?
Sorry I've been a bit absent since DrupalCon -- I'm right up against a big deadline at work for next week, and am behind on writing my book. I just crossed the 1/2 point for the book though, so plan to take an evening or two to get the newsletter in shape.
The newsletter has (access to) a lot of material in it, so it just needs some tweaking to get it ready. I'd like to aim for publishing it Tuesday or Wednesday, so if you have anything that you want to get it at the last minute, this is your chance!
Thanks for the great work from everyone!
Recap of the first topic of my last message, for emphasis:
The obvious topic for the March newsletter is the DrupalCon, of course. There are over 800 people here, though and we need to recruit people to write up their favorite session/s. If you are at the conference, please write up at least one session, and/or find three other people who can write up a session. We only need a paragraph or two, but feel free to write up a whole big article if you're inspired.
Sneak preview of this discussion (if you decide not to click through to the rest of this discussion topic): http://drupal-newsletter.org/issue/2008/01
This DrupalCon has been phenomenal! We had an impromptu BoF session yesterday for the Drupal Newsletter. The three big things that came out of that were a plan for March's newsletter, the newsletter length, and building a stand-alone site for the newsletter.Read more
Are you attending the Boston DrupalCon, and can you help write up 1-2 sessions, and/or general opinions about it?
That was quite an issue we put out there. I've gotten lots of positive feedback about it, and am excited to keep this ball rolling.
Things I personally learned from this issue:
- Robin's IRC nick is 'self'. And he's available by e-mail...
- 20 pages might be a bit long for an issue -- we can definitely move stuff to future issues, and talk more about http://newsletter.drupal.org as a possibility for the future.
- Make sure we put a link to the newsletter in the version that goes out by e-mail.
- Triple check links before it goes out -- Drupal.org's mail system mangled the anchor links to the TOC.
- I had to take out all those eye-candy links in the intro paragraph, so it looked better for the e-mail version.
- Double check that d.o & g.d.o look the same; they use different filters.
The newsletter is ready. I would like us to publish it today. I'd hoped Amazon could help, but he's been busy this afternoon with DrupalCon business. Is there anyone with the proper privileges who's available right now, or later this evening, who might be able to help?
