There are three patches in the queue aimed at improving our ability to
classify and discover modules and themes on drupal.org, part of the
CivicSpace Labs Drupal contributions. Might some devs be able to give them
some detailed review?
1. Posted today, a patch to drupal.module to enable sites to post data on
their installed modules/themes/theme engines to drupal.org:
http://drupal.org/node/39697 This would enable us to collect data on what's
actually used as a basis for project categorizing/prioritizing on
drupal.org. In turn, drupal sites could (when we implement such) receive
regular updates on newer versions of their installed components. This patch
needs some detailed security-minded review.
2. Provide accurate changed dates for releases: http://drupal.org/node/37927
This is needed so that we can sort projects by date. It's not a complicated
patch, so should be quick to review.
3. Browsing of projects by multiple parameters (date, category, name--once
we complete the drupal.module changes, we'll add in ranking):
http://drupal.org/node/33803#comment-56410 An earlier version of this patch
got some good attention and feedback (thanks Angela, Ber, and Dries). The
new version has a number of changes, though, so some fresh review would be
If you can find the time, please test/review these patches.
