Next Wednesday, June 27, is a possible date for the next bugfix release of Drupal 7 core.
However, there are a number of issues tagged as 7.15 release blockers which we want to get resolved before then. Mostly these are tagged that way because they contain fixes for regressions (i.e., behavior that used to work in earlier versions of Drupal but isn't working correctly in the latest code).
All these issues have proposed patches, so what we mainly need help with is two things:
- Manual testing: You don't need to be an expert to do this; you simply need to try out the patch in various scenarios and confirm that it works. This is particularly important for issues that are known to have affected various contributed modules, since it's important to make sure those modules work correctly with the proposed fix.
- Technical reviews: If you have expertise in any of the areas of Drupal that these patches affect, reviews of the code are highly welcome.
Thanks for your help, and hopefully we can get the next Drupal 7 release out the door soon!
