With the work going into Drupal 6 development, work, and a number of
other modules, I've been looking over my list of contrib projects and
admitting that I simply don't have enough hours in the day to
maintain all of them effectively. I'm actively seeking maintainers
and co-maintainers for the following modules. Drop me a line if
you're interested in any of them and we can chat. If you're familiar
with Drupal code and want to make a splash, a number of them offer
some cool opportunities.
* Akismet -- The Wordpress anti-spam API.
Insert Block -- Inserts blocks in node bodies using [this]
Insert View -- Inserts blocks in node bodies using [this]
Latest and greatest -- Cast votes on aggregator items.
Loves and Hates -- Cast votes on taxonomy terms
* Node Moderation -- Complex role-weighted voting for nodes
Related Nodes -- Taxonomy-based 'similar nodes' block
Custom Breadcrumbs -- Create customized breadcrumb trails for
each node type
Custom Links -- Add links to nodes without code
* Custom Pagers -- Forum/Book/Gallery style pagers for nodes
* VotingAPI -- A backend API for voting and rating modules
Most of these modules would need someone with moderate Drupal
familiarity, but aren't particularly huge or complex as modules go.
Starred modules are more complex and/or tricky, and would need
someone with experience working on other modules and solid
familiarity with Drupal's APIs and code standards.
Most of the modules in the 'Maintainers sought' category (Akismet is
one exception) haven't been upgraded to Drupal 5, or are in progress;
I just haven't had time or had the need to. Most of them (Akismet
excepted, probably) will become unmaintained after the Drupal 6
release unless someone else wants to pick them up.
Modules in the 'Co-maintainers sought' category are all running
smooth on Drupal 5, but my attention is divided enough that patches,
fixes, and new features only get sporadic attention. I'm hoping to
find other folks who share a similar vision for their future directions.
If anyone is interested, drop me a line. Thanks!
