Shyamala's picture


Further to Dries blog on Reducing risk in the Drupal 8 release schedule at http://buytaert.net/reducing-risk-in-the-drupal-8-release-schedule there is a need to consolidate and make sure that the CSS architecture fixes do not become a blocker. To ensure the same John has moved the fixes & issues around CSS Architecture to the JohnAlbin’s Mobile initiative sandbox. This will also ensure that all the commits are consolidated and pushed as meaningful chunks. Also the renaming of CSS files done during the Singapore sprint get recognition! So Join John @ the sandbox to make the much awaited CSS clean possible and become a part of Drupal 8 release!

There has been lot of work towards improving the front performance & a large part of this has been through js clean ups & enhancements. Want to start contributing to javascript in Drupal 8, below are some places to start.

Checkout the meta issue at http://drupal.org/node/1415788
& JS clean up issues.

With Dries confirming no support for IE 8 in Drupal 8, support needed to remove IE 8 at http://drupal.org/node/1993322. This issue is about listing all IE8-related issues and tracking the progress of IE8 removal. Everything that will be undone here should be ported to the ie8 module to make sure it's possible for contrib to add back the compatibility
