Proposed Solution For Recruiting More Mentors and Contributors

Bellow is a summary of BOF's talk on DrupalCon Barcelona.

The problems:

  • Useful modules are being abandoned because maintainers are not supporting them
  • New Drupal contributors are creating “useless” modules just to get access for creating full projects

Solutions:

<

ul>

  • A page listing abandoned modules that is well promoted
  • New members may find a module they would like to support, and become a co-maintainer by solving issues and submitting patches

    DrupalEasy Community Mentors

    Hey everybody,

    I want to let everyone know about a mentoring program that I'm organizing for a group of students that I'll be training over the next few months.

    The tl:dr version is this: I run a 10-week, 70-hour Drupal training program in Brevard County, Florida (home of Kennedy Space Center) for recently laid-off residents. With the retirement of the Space Shuttle, there have been over 8,000 layoffs - many of these people are skilled IT workers looking for new careers.

    Docs Mentors

    After a big discussion with some of the core devs who attended the PNW Drupal Summit last weekend, I've created a page for people who don't consider themselves part of the Docs Team to sign up as willing to mentor people working on Docs. http://drupal.org/node/936522

    The idea is that people working on docs often need help with technical details of what they're documenting, and don't know who they can ask. The people I was talking to were more than willing to help out, and we also talked about pairing up docs people with contrib maintainers so they can help maintain project-specific docs.

    Dojo 2.1: Another attempt to revive the Drupal learning and mentoring group

    Several months have passed since the Dojo lost it's way a bit when some noble ninjas attempted to create a great deal of good for the Drupal project. In a group of 1500+ members, there is no way to achieve any sort of consensus to why it stalled, how it could succeed, or what the purpose was in the first place. There are, however, a lot of indicators that the concept/ideal of an open learning/mentoring group is solid and is worth reviving.

    Mentors/coaches for proposals

    One observation I've had from lurking in the Knight Drupal Initiative meetings is something that's haunted me before. If only I was good at writing a solid grant proposal and subsequent review and revisions, some of my pie-in the sky ideas might actually turn into something valuable for the community (and provide a self-sustainable way for me to contribute).

    EC maintainer seeks: non-smoker, likes bushwalking and ...

    Hi there

    I'm trying to locate developers (any skill level is ok) who have the same E-Commerce focus that I do. The idea is that I am available for feedback, reviews, advice, escalation, and even tuition. Yes, tuition, which means I'm happy for this to be a mentor arrangement (which is why I've posted to Dojo).

    The problem with developing for E-Commerce is a) we are not giving out CVS access and b) patches in the queue can be painfully slow to commit. We already have 5 maintainers. So the challenge is to have patches committed promptly by one of the maintainers. I can do this, as long as the patches are for areas that I am familiar with.
