D8 User Manual proposal

There's a new proposal to create a coherent, internationalized Drupal 8 User Manual, which Joe Shindelar (eojthebrave) discussed at DrupalCon Los Angeles recently. Because we want comments on the proposal, it's posted in the Documentation group (the Core group doesn't allow comments):
https://groups.drupal.org/node/470648

I thought some other groups might be interested, so I'm posting this quick note to let you know. Follow the link for all the details and discussions.

Plan for upcoming D8 Accelerate sprint on DrupalCI (Modernizing Testbot Initiative)

Next week, an international conglomeration of awesome folks will convene in Portland, Oregon for a D8 Accelerate-funded sprint on DrupalCI: Modernizing Testbot Initiative.

The main aim of DrupalCI is to rebuild Drupal's current testbot infrastructure (which is currently powered by an aging Drupal 6 site) to industry-standard components such as Jenkins, Docker, and so on, architected to be generally useful outside of Drupal.org. See Nick Schuch's Architecting DrupalCI at DrupalCon Amsterdam blog post for more details.

The goal is to end the sprint with an "MVP" product on production hardware, with integration to Drupal.org, which can be used to demonstrate a full end-to-end D8 core ‘simpletest’ test run request from Drupal.org through to results appearing on the results server.

You can read and subscribe to the sprint hit-list issue to get an idea of who's going to be working on what, and the places where you too can jump in (see the much longer version for more details).

This is a particularly important initiative to help with, since it not only unblocks Drupal 8 from shipping, it also makes available awesome new testing tools for all Drupal.org projects!

Go Team! :)

Introducing Drupal.org Terms of Service and Privacy Policy

Almost half a year ago, with the help of the Drupal.org Content Working Group and lawyers, the Drupal Association started working on a Drupal.org Terms of Service (ToS) and Privacy Policy. After a number of drafts and rewrites, we are now ready to introduce both documents to Drupal.org users. Read the announcement on Drupal.org for more information.

Drupal.org team week notes #27

Upcoming deployments: CDN switch for Drupal.org

We have successfully switched all of the Drupal.org sub-sites over to our CDN (Content Delivery Network) provider. On July 2nd we will be pointing Drupal.org (www.drupal.org) at our CDN. This deployment improves our ability to serve static files (images, javascript, css, patches, etc.) and improves our network routes outside of North America.

Looking for community feedback

Community Tools Team is working on new layout for user profiles on Drupal.org. The first iteration of mockups is now open for community feedback.

Redesigned Drupal.org profile page: your feedback needed!

Hi everyone! We're in the process of redesigning the profile page on Drupal.org, and we need the community's feedback! You can find the issue at: https://www.drupal.org/node/2281763.

Specific feedback needed:

  1. Assuming that we're keeping the current theme, does the organization of information make sense on the page?
  2. Is there any new information we should be collecting on profiles? Since this will require refactoring several of the data elements in profiles, we have a great opportunity to allow users to show/share more about themselves.

Drupal.org team week notes #26

Upcoming deployments: improvements to comments

You may have noticed that Drupal.org user profiles now let you upload your picture. These will be shown with comments. You can see a preview on the staging site, the HTTP user/password is drupal/drupal: in the issue queue (example) and forum (example). You can log in with your Drupal.org username and password to test more.

Whose Job Is It? Help the Drupal Association Answer that Question

A while ago I shared that we are trying to better understand who plays what role in the Drupal Community. A small team of Association Board and staff have done some interviews with about 20 community members and now we want to get a broader understanding - what are the issues that concern you, and who should be doing the work to address them?

We're reaching out to our most active community members to ask you to complete a survey about who you think should be doing what in our community.

Greetings from your friendly neighbourhood Drupal.org Software Working Group!

https://drupal.org/node/2261945 has a proposal + mockups on a new way to handle feature requests for Drupal.org in order to help both the Drupal.org Software Working Group and other working groups prioritize the feature roadmap for Drupal.org. Since this tool will become the method through which the Drupal community (in the widest sense of the word) makes known their Drupal.org needs/wants/desires, we'd love to hear your comments and feedback on the proposal.
