Hi all,

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.

Thanks, Nedjo
