It is an honor to work with so many smart, committed people. And it is great to know that we have made tangible accessibility improvements to a product that powers 1% of the web.

How was this list created? I pulled all the issues from the issue queue that were tagged accessibility for Drupal core version 7.x or 8.x. I used curl to grab the issue pages (including multiple pages) and a Perl script to extract and count each contributor.

Comments

This is beautiful, Brandon.

This is beautiful, Brandon. I'm serious. I'm going to make a poster of this and print it out for DrupalCon.

Gee! I said less than I thought I did!

Cliff's picture

Or maybe I just had fewer, longer comments.

Looks great, Brandon!

Kate, are you going to do the poster as a tag cloud? Maybe with this list in the lower right corner? (He asked, without thinking about how much space 395 names would take up in a readable typeface)

Thanks Brandon!

It's certainly interesting to see it in this format! Now if there was an issue that got bumped to D8 would it be covered? Did this cover duplicate issues or issue threads (like CSS display:none;) that got pushed onto 3-4 different issue queues over their lifetime. What about things like the press release issue for the announcement of D7. Gotta draw the line somewhere, but it's interesting to think of what contributions are missing from this. It doesn't include comments here in GDO related to D7 or on IRC/Twitter.

15 people have more than 100 posts to the issue queue. It's funny to see that Dries just made the top 10. I'm not sure how to visualize this to demonstrate the strength of the community. Don't want to graph something that just demonstrates how loud Everett & I have been on this issue.

Would also be interesting to see which companies are active. There's no easy way to make that list, but certainly OpenConcept, OJCTech, Lullabot, Acquia & CivicActions are active. Who else is represented by this list?

In someways this reminds me of:

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead

But it's also bigger than this. Heck, there are 4 confirmed sessions on accessibility issues here http://chicago2011.drupal.org/sessions and I know at least one D7 book out there has an accessibility chapter too http://groups.drupal.org/node/82009

Not sure how to visualize this in a way that brings the right message across. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with Kate! Whatever it is, please print me a copy.

Awesome

Awesome, clearly I am a loud mouth! Love to see this in a tag cloud. Thanks brandonojc, very nice.

+1 Thankyou =)

You know what would be really cool?

Cliff's picture

A little bit vain, but really cool?

To have this printed on a T-shirt as a tag cloud.

But then I thought about how big the cloud would have to be, and I realized we'd need a blanket instead.

Or maybe even a stadium-sized tarpaulin.

Scrolling through that list amazes me every time I do it. Great job, everyone, and many, many thanks to everyone who contributed.
