Do you own an existing drupal.org project that does not yet have a Drupal 9 compatible release? This week would be a good time to take that step and make a Drupal 9 compatible release! I am paying for two tickets to DrupalCon Europe for new Drupal 9 compatible releases. Read on for exact rules!
DrupalCon Europe is in two weeks already! December 8-11, 2020. It offers 4 keynotes, including the Driesnote and the Drupal Core Initiative Leads Keynote (that I help coordinate), 119 sessions in five different content tracks, 4 workshops, interest group discussions, and networking. These are all included in the 250 EUR (no VAT) ticket. I would love to see you there!
Looking at Drupal 9 compatibility data, while 83% of the top 1000 projects by usage already have a release, the others do not. If we look at all the projects, 43% of them have a Drupal 9 compatible release. This is way better than with Drupal 8 was at the same time, but we can still do better! 22.5% of all projects (2177 projects in total) need an info.yml file change and a release, no other changes required. There is a good chance one of those are yours!
The rules of this giveaway are the following:
- The participating project must have existed before this week.
- The project must have its first Drupal 9 compatible release this week, before end of Friday.
- Selection from eligible projects is random.
- The lead maintainer on the winning two projects will pick who gets the ticket.
- In case of a pass, I draw another project.
- I will be using my existing script from the #DrupalCares campaign to track the newly Drupal 9 compatible projects.
- The script uses the official drupal.org releases dump and takes dates of releases from there.
I'll keep this list up to date throughout the week with who is in the running:
