Use Entity references instead of file-fields?

I haven't studied the code for file-fields in any detail, so perhaps some of my assumptions are wrong.

But here are my assumptions, each one based on the previous:

<

ol>

  • As files are their own entities, they don't "need" a field for storage. This seems true since I can delete file fields without loosing media content.
  • File fields are therefore really a type of reference field.
  • File fields probably duplicate code that is more general in either, or both of entity reference and relation

    Media Initiative goals needed due to D8 feature freeze Dec 1

    Dries announce today, http://buytaert.net/drupal-8-code-freeze-december-1st-2012, that December 1st is feature freeze for Drupal 8.

    That is in 9.5 months and if we are going to have a good chance of getting much needed file and media management into core, then we need to start working on what the goal is.

    I'm not a coder, but I hardly believe it is as simple as just moving for example the File Entity module to /core/modules. Especially considering that when it is in core and 8.0 is out, very little will change.

    Media FAQ needed

    There are quite a few repeating issues popping up in the Media queue, such as all those about users not getting a video player working. In many cases it turns out they are under the impression Media comes with support for this. In other cases their problems should be dealt with in the module providing the integration.

    A FAQ would help us keep the queue cleaner, and at the same time be a great resource for users to find answers to common problems they face.

    Feature module to quickly set up a Media test site

    I have created a Media Support Squad feature module that enables all needed modules, plus Admin menu, to quickly be able to start testing for example patches.

    As an added bonus it comes with Text formats and WYSIWYG profiles for both CKEditor and TinyMCE so you easily can test that too.

    You can download or clone it from http://drupal.org/sandbox/tsvenson/1428994. The project page contains instructions on how to install and enable it.

    If your quick, you should have a new Media enabled site up in just a few minutes, ready for testing patches and other things.
