This one is going to be short.
If you want to make Drupal 7 any sense for developers, themers, and users, then you really want to spend a fair amount of time on issues tagged with "API clean-up":
In case you think you don't have time, then please prepare for not complaining later. Thanks.
We roughly have 3 weeks left. Most of those issues have at least one Drupal developer working on it and this (issue tag) queue itself has a high momentum.
What's badly missing is reviews from people who care. Developers (including me) cannot mark their own patches as "reviewed & tested by the community", since every single patch needs to go through a so called "peer-review" - someone else has to confirm that the approach taken is sane, the code looks good, and the patch improves Drupal's quality.
Wanna help making Drupal 7 "usable" from all perspectives?
- We're always available on IRC, irc.freenode.net, #drupal - learn more.
- Grab yourself Dreditor (the Drupal [patch review] Editor) in case you're using Firefox or another Greasemonkey-compatible browser. Use that to review those patches.
Specifically: I know there are countless of Drupal shops and Drupal agencies out there. Those who always complain about bad APIs, inconsistently applied features, and bugs here and there. This is the chance to get yourself beyond talking and complaining. Start now.
In case you'd like to work on Drupal core, but you can't for any reason:
Tell us the issues you'd really like or badly need to get done, along with a good reason for why we should get them done for you.Submitted by sun on 19. September 2009 - 7:17
