DrupalCon San Francisco is approaching fast and if D7 isn't out the door by then we're going to have a lot of disappointed people walking around. As of a few minutes ago D7 was showing 465 pending bugs, 189 critical issues, 1674 patches in the queue and 429 patches to review. In other words, there's a mountain of work left to do and we need to step up as (local) community to do whatever we can to help get D7 closer to the finish line.
With this goal in mind, Koumbit has decided to dedicate its entire team for the whole day on Friday, February 19th and we are challenging all the other serious Drupal shops to show up at our office to contribute to this effort.
If you are like us, you've barely had time to play around with D7, much less get your hands dirty under the hood. Well this is your chance to get a head start on all the others and, more importantly, to contribute in a meaningful sense to the advancement of the platform that we have all come to love so much.
Angela Byron (aka webchick) will be our guide us throughout this exciting adventure. The Montreal Drupal community has had the enormous privilege over the past few years to have her in our midst, sharing her vast knowledge and valuable insights with us. One can only imagine the immense stress that she has had to endure trying to rein in this ambitious release. It is time for us to demonstrate a little appreciation and solidarity by showing up in droves to make this the most productive Montreal meet-up ever.
Stay tuned for some prep notes.
