Coder Drupal 8.x Battleplan

(Cross posted from http://drupal.org/node/2099351 because Angie said I could/should. This isn't a core issue, but it's an upgrade to D8 issue. We are talking about tackling automatic code upgrades.)

If the community agrees with the plan. It will be a few weeks or a more before I'm ready to ask people to write upgrades. But before we get there, in general, does this sound like a good plan or not? Please provide feedback on the d.o issue http://drupal.org/node/2099351.

Fixing drush and Drupal 8

Drupal 8 relies on generated PHP files. We have constructed a system that protects against poorly written upload scripts (these have created real life site breaches already) overwriting them. However, security is always a compromise and this solution meant that drush is unable to clear the cache in Drupal 8. This is a compromise we are not happy about so a (still secure) fix has been posted together with detailed testing instructions. Please help with testing the patch!

This Week in Drupal Core: September 18, 2013

Welcome to the inaugural entry in the "This Week in Drupal Core" series, which aims to highlight cool happenings in and around Drupal core for people who don't have their home pages set to http://drupal.org/project/issues/user (as shocking as it may be to hear, apparently these people exist ;)).

Overall, energy in the core queue has largely been spent around readying things for DrupalCon Prague (in just a few short days, EEEEE!), which means a particular focus on un-blocking various initiatives, completing conversions, and improving developer experience so our presentations are a lot less embarrassing. :D

Drupal core security release window on Wednesday, September 18

Start: 
2013-09-18 (All day) America/New_York
Organizers: 

The monthly security release window for Drupal 6 and Drupal 7 core will take place on Wednesday, September 18.

This does not mean that a Drupal core security release will necessarily take place on that date for either the Drupal 6 or Drupal 7 branches, only that you should prepare to look out for one (and be ready to update your Drupal sites in the event that the Drupal security team decides to make a release).

There will be no bug fix release on this date; the next window for a Drupal core bug fix release is Wednesday, October 2.

No Drupal core release on Wednesday, September 4

The monthly Drupal core bug fix release window is scheduled for this Wednesday. However, since the last Drupal 7 bug fix release was only one month ago and there haven't been many changes added to the 7.x development version since then, there won't be a release this week.

Upcoming release windows include:

  • Wednesday, September 18 (security release window)
  • Wednesday, October 2 (bug fix release window)

What Drupal 8 API changes are still outstanding?

Completing Drupal 8's core APIs is a key step toward releasing Drupal 8. During this phase of Drupal 8's development, we restrict API changes to only those that are necessary to resolve important issues, and API changes must go through an approval process. Since the announcement of the beginning of the API freeze on July 1st, we've made substantial progress defining the state of our APIs.

2013-08-10 18:00 - 20:00 America/Chicago
Organizers: 

Join us for an extra Drupal Core Contribution Mentoring session today (Saturday night in North America and Europe; Sunday morning in Australia). Even if you've never contributed to Drupal core before, we'll find you a task you can do in the Drupal core queue and guide you through completing it. You'll also likely learn a bit about Drupal 8 and the core quality assurance process.

Join the extended Drupal 8 sprints in Prague from Sept 21st to 29th!

We have a great tradition of extended sprints around big Drupal events including the ones we did around DrupalCons in Portland, Munich, Denver, as well as Drupal Dev Days like Dublin and Barcelona. While there is a sprint day included in DrupalCons (usually) on Friday, given that a lot of the Drupal core and contrib developers fly in for these events, it makes a lot of sense to use this opportunity to start sooner and/or extend our stay and work together in one space on the harder problems.

DrupalCon Prague is next up! This is the first DrupalCon, where the Drupal Association recognises the need for extended sprints as part of the schedule and works with sprinters to provide space on Monday as well! We are still organising additional weekend sprints before/after for ourselves! There are already various sprints signed up including Multilingual, Views, WSCCI, Configuration management and Fields all to further development of Drupal 8 at various capacities on these weekends. Now is the time to consider if you can be available and book your travel and hotel accordingly!

Hub Praha - our weekend sprint space. Nice, right?

Practical details

Dates
21st (Sat), 22nd (Sun), 23rd (Mon) of Sept and the 28th (Sat) and 29th (Sun) of Sept 2013. (There is already a DrupalCon sprint day on the 27th at the DrupalCon venue as well).
Times
We start each day at 9am and have space booked until late in the night as needed (at least on the weekends).

Disclaimer

The Drupal Association and DrupalCon are not involved in the organisation of the extra weekend sprint opportunities.

Drupal 7 core release on Wednesday, August 7

Start: 
2013-08-07 (All day) America/New_York
Organizers: 

The monthly Drupal core bug fix release window is this Wednesday, and since it has been a while since the last Drupal 7 bug fix release, I've decided to go ahead and plan to release Drupal 7.23 on that date. Per our release policy, this will be a bug fix release only (no security fixes).

Please help with this entity patch

Field storage is being converted to be entity based and so fields will no longer be shareable between entity types (sharing between bundles / node types is still allowed). While the system itself is mostly done and working, this broke a lot of tests. Helping hands are much appreciated in https://drupal.org/node/2047777 . chx is available in IRC almost around the clock to help. As this is the very foundation of the entity-field API, we can't freeze other entity APIs before this is done.

This is the first DrupalCon, where the Drupal Association recognises the need for extended sprints as part of the schedule and works with sprinters to provide space on Monday as well! We'd still need to organise any additional sprints before/after for ourselves as needed though. To figure out what kind of space would be needed, it would be amazing if those interested would sign up with their availability, so we'd have an idea.

There is no commitment of space available at this point outside of Monday and Friday, but the Drupal community is powerful enough to make things happen!

No Drupal core release on Wednesday, July 3

The monthly Drupal core bug fix release window is scheduled for this Wednesday. Although the last Drupal 7 bug fix release was three months ago, there are some big changes that have been committed to Drupal 7.x-dev recently (and a couple more probably on the way soon) that need a little more time to test before a release; additionally, there is one Drupal 7.23 release-blocking change notice not yet written.
