Drupal 8 Initiatives

This group is an announcement list of major discussions and happenings in Drupal 8 initiatives, cross-posted from their dedicated groups and issue queues (listed below). If you only have time to read a single channel of info on Drupal 8, this is the one!

Content is along the lines of:

a) We think a decision has been reached, and here's the decision. Feedback?
b) We're trying to reach a decision, and we need help. Here's where to chime in to help us reach it.
c) General status reports about "Hey, if you've been busy for the past while, here's what's going on and what things you should know."

Unfortunately, this group needs to be kept invite-only in order to keep the content curated to only important announcements of general interest, but you are warmly encouraged to comment and participate on any discussions posted to this group!

We have tasks for all kinds of interests on all kinds of difficulty levels. All help is welcome!

Below is a recap of helpful timestamps to check out, a list of resources mentioned, and questions that were answered.

Join us for a live Drupal 8 question & answer session on April 11th 10am EDT !

Start: 
2013-04-11 10:00 - 11:00 America/New_York
Organizers: 
Event type: 
Online meeting (eg. IRC meeting)

Recap + Q's + timestamps + resources noted here for you

LIVE BROADCAST: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=dIP8u2xYQps

Drupal 8 is the first development cycle introducing Drupal core initiatives, which are key focus areas for improving Drupal. Each core initiative is led by an individual or small team, and these initiative leads guide the efforts of other core contributors around their initiative. The initiatives are only a part of all Drupal 8 development, but most of the big Drupal 8 changes have been worked on by these initiative teams. (Read more about the core initiatives.)

Several of the initiative leads participated in a Drupal 8 question & answer session at DrupalCon Sydney and it went very well, so we want to repeat that experience by providing another opportunity to talk with the global Drupal community!

Goals of the session:

  • Share the status, milestones, and next steps for each Drupal 8 initiative.
  • Answer your questions: Want to know what’s going on, or how you can get involved? Now’s your chance to talk with us!

Drupal 8 Multilingual Initiative meeting on March 13th, 2013

Start: 
2013-03-13 17:00 - 18:00 UTC
Organizers: 
Event type: 
Online meeting (eg. IRC meeting)

This time Cathy (YesCT) Theys will lead the meeting to discuss ongoing issues in the multilingual initiative. Gábor is participating at a W3C event, and cannot attend. Be aware of timezone changes around your region as applicable!

We got some breakthroughs done recently. Nodes are now using the new entity field API (http://drupal.org/node/1818556) and we have a working implementation of a configuration translation user interface being explored at http://drupal.org/project/config_translation (as it stands now it will need to be a contributed module).

We need hands to help introduce, verify and fix configuration schemas and help test and continue the Entity API conversions as well as figure out node properties so titles and authors can become multilingual for example! We have tasks for all kinds of interests on all kinds of difficulty levels. All help is welcome!

This IRC meeting is in the #drupal-i18n channel on IRC. See http://drupal.org/irc for more information. The time above is marked with UTC - check in your own timezone.

See you all there!
