How not to have a frazzled, baggy-eyed webchick at Drupalcon

Thu, 08/20/2009 - 20:34 -- webchick

Dear Drupal community: I love you dearly, and I would love to look at all of your patches! However, we're down to the wire here trying to work hard on several very important initiatives over the next ten days, including:

So, if your patch:

- is against documentation or user-facing strings (stuff in t())
- adds tests
- fixes bugs, in a way that does not change APIs (function xxx() lines, db schema, etc.)
- is minor coding standards clean-up
- doesn't affect the XHTML output of Drupal

...then please consider not pinging me about it in IRC for the next 10 days so that I can focus time and energy on some of these bigger, scarier patches that must get in before 9/1. After code freeze, I am very happy to look at those other kinds of patches! :) Until then, consider helping out in one of these areas, or check http://drupal.org/community-initiatives/drupal-core and http://drupal.org/project/issues/search/drupal?issue_tags=API+change for others.

My sanity thanks you. :)


we had a little facebook discussion when i posted a photo of our last drupal-austria meeting in vienna: all male human beings. a fb-friend of mine commented on this "a man's, a man's, a man's world".

christian ziegler pointed out that d7 development is led by a woman - you! knowing your name from lullabot podcast i followed the hint and found your video where you showed woman's share in open source - something like 2% (or less?).

well anyway. thx for your work, angie!
