Alrighty, now that the split is public and Drupal Commerce has been rebooted, I'd like to recover a bit of the team spirit and make the most of the time we have left until Drupalcon SF. We're going to go for a little bit different time slot this time and aim for 5 PM EST tomorrow, Jan. 27, 2010. Meet in #drupalcommerce on irc.freenode.net. Topics of discussion will involve tightening up everyone's understanding of what DC is and is not, letting people know where development is happening and how we envision people pitching in, and recovering plans for a code sprint in Paris the last week of February.
As I outlined in my blog post on the subject, Ubercore has been renamed to Drupal Commerce. This is unfortunate, because I liked the short URL, but d7ci just doesn't have the same ring as d7uc. So, go ahead and update your bookmarks and prepare to double down as we make up for lost time!
The planning sprint on October 26, 2009 covered a lot of ground. You can check out the chat log to get the gist of it. Some action items were boiled down into tickets on drupal.org, and we've had some movement around getting the source control workflow ironed out for distributed development. However, much remains to be done, and much momentum needs to be recaptured.
We've just launched the Ubercore website from the PariSoMa conference room in San Francisco, CA. Currently, a half dozen Drupal / Ubercart community members are sprinting in front of a giant white board to flesh out its contents. This site will serve as the central nervous system of the Ubercore Initiative, a place for its supporters to review the guiding documents, provide feedback and propose changes, and stay up to date on the status of the effort.
While this site won't host any code or development discussions, we will be coordinating our documentation efforts through the books and forums here. We'll be posting a summary of our sprint in a few days with tips on how to get involved in the project and what to expect in the near future. Feel free to cruise around, but expect to find stub pages and text that is subject to change.
Welcome aboard, and please bear with us as we work to get all our notes on the site and revised. Our first goal is an Ubercart 2.0 release, then to address the jumbledness here.
