Jacob Rockowitz: Asking organizations to back the Webform module and Drupal-related Open Collectives

Planet Drupal - 12 February 2019 - 11:23am


At the beginning of the New Year, I set up the Webform module's Open Collective. I knew that in order to persuade organizations to back the Webform module or any Drupal-related Open Collective would require directly asking organizations to join the Webform module's Open Collective. Additionally, I also needed to listen to what an organization might want to get out of their financial contribution to an Open Collective


At DrupalCampNJ, I paid a visit to the event's sponsors that I was friendly with and asked them to join the Webform module's Open Collective. I also decided to broaden my pitch to include asking people to consider backing any Drupal related Open Collective. The and Drupal Recording Initiative collectives provide invaluable services that our community needs and everyone should help support them.

Everyone was familiar with the Webform module, and most people knew that I was maintaining the Drupal 8 version, but no one knew what an "Open Collective" is. Gradually, as I spoke to people, I managed to put together a concise explanation for the question, "What is Open Collective?"

The above explanation leads to the next relevant question which is "How is this money going to be spent?" My response is this: Spending the collected funds is going to be determined by what the backers want and the Webform module needs.

As the maintainer of the Webform module, I feel we need a logo. A logo will help distinguish the Webform module from the massive sea of online form builders. For some projects, the Webform module is a significant part of a proposal and a logo would help make the software feel more...Read More

Thus is possible to forward the arguments into the context filters of the view making it much faster on the performance side.

Drupal core announcements: 8.7.0-alpha1 deadline moved to March 11

Planet Drupal - 11 February 2019 - 9:42am

Last fall, we adjusted our minor release date for Drupal 8.7.0 from March 6 to May 1. This was done as part of moving Drupal's minor release schedule toward a consistent schedule that will have minor releases in the first weeks of June and December each year. (See Plan for Drupal 9 for more information on why we are making this change.)

However, the change to the 8.7.0 release date means that DrupalCon Seattle now falls in the middle of important preparation phases for the minor release. In order to ensure community members have adequate time to prepare and test the release without interfering with DrupalCon Seattle events, we've moved the alpha and beta phases for the release one week earlier:

  • 8.7.0-alpha1 will now be released the week of March 11. The alpha phase will last two weeks until the release window for beta1.
  • 8.7.0-beta1 will now be released the week of March 25. The beta phase will now last three weeks (including the week of DrupalCon) instead of two. The beta phase will still end when the release candidate window begins.
  • The release candidate (RC) and release dates are unchanged. The RC window still begins April 15 and the scheduled release date is still May 1.

(Read more about alpha, beta, and RC phases.)
