I'm leading a project to write the jQuery Mobile Cookbook for O'Reilly. We are currently soliciting authors to help write recipe's for the Cookbook. A recipe is 8-10 paragraphs that follows a very particular format and is an great and easy way to get started in book writing.
If you've ever wanted to become a published author, here's your chance.
Hi Everyone- I'd like to start a discussion on how we can improve the plugins repository to better fulfill the needs of the community. When we first created the plugins site, there were a lot less plugins. As jQuery's popularity continues to rise, the need for additional features for plugin authors is growing. As the person most familiar with the plugins site, I get a decent amount of requests for tweaks here and there. Unfortunately, because of the choice of using Drupal with Drupal's Project module, the amount of features that can be easily turned on is small. I've been very cautious at modifying the source code of the Project module for many reasons. I'm in touch with the leaders of the Project Module, having met up with them at the last Drupalcon. Currently, there is ongoing work on the Project module for Drupal.org, and the Project module remains the last major issue in upgrading Drupal.org to Drupal 6. So, this problem is bigger then jQuery. What I'd like to solicit is feedback on the following: - What works with the current plugins site, what are it's strengths? - What doesn't work, where does it fall down? - What are the top 5 major features missing from the current site? - Are there any other open source project management solutions that are worthy of consideration to replace Drupal and the Project module? (PS. Because of the work involved in this, I would consider this only as a last resort) - Any other feedback is appreciated Thanks, Mike Hostetler
