Community Working Group posts: Seeking volunteers for the evolving structure and roles of the Drupal Community Working Group

Main Drupal Feed - Fri, 03/06/2020 - 22:20

The mission of the Community Working Group (CWG) is to foster a friendly and welcoming community for the Drupal project and to uphold the Drupal Code of Conduct. 

- https://www.drupal.org/community/cwg 

As the Drupal Community Working Group (CWG) moves into its seventh year, we have been thinking a lot about how we can evolve it to better serve the changing needs of the Drupal Community. 

At the moment, the four members of the CWG split our time between reactive issues (conflict resolution and Code of Conduct enforcement) and proactive issues (community health resources, workshops). While the work is often emotionally taxing, it is also often extremely rewarding. We believe the proactive work has a large impact on the community, but our time is often filled with reacting to issues in the community. 

To this end, we have been working with Tara King (sparklingrobots) on identifying new CWG roles, mainly focused on proactive tasks. These new roles will not play a part in conflict resolution matters and will not receive access to any incident reports or other confidential information that has been shared with the group, with the exception of subject matter experts, who may see some limited information when brought in to consult on specific cases. These new roles are designed for individuals to help provide insight and expertise into how we can better support and grow our community.

It is important to note that all CWG members must abide by the CWG Code of Ethics, regardless of if they consult on conflict resolution or Code of Conduct enforcement cases or not.

The list of new CWG roles follows below. In some cases, we have already reached out to individuals to fill some of the roles. Full details about the roles can be found on the Community Working Group's Community Health Team page.

  • Community health - develops and produces community health initiatives like workshops and tweaks to drupal.org processes.
  • Community event support - assists Drupal community events with Code of Conduct template, playbooks, and other resources. It is our hope that this role be filled by members of the newly established Drupal Event Organizers Group. 
  • Subject matter experts - includes individuals with knowledge of specific geographic, industry, and mental health areas. In some cases, subject matters experts will be provided with limited information about specific conflict resolution issues they have been brought in to assist with.
  • Ambassadors - coordinators between the CWG and other groups, including the Drupal Association, other open source projects, Drupal.org maintainers, and Diversity and Inclusion.

We are strong believers that the more proactive work we do, the stronger and healthier our community will be and the less reactive work we will have. 

If you, or someone you know, are interested in any of the new roles, please drop us a line at drupal-cwg [at] drupal.org. Include your name, drupal.org username and which role (or roles) you are interested in.

Centarro: Adding Slack "Office Hours" for Centarro Commerce support

Main Drupal Feed - Thu, 03/05/2020 - 22:47
For the last several years, we've coordinated Commerce 2.x development with community contributors through weekly meetings in the #commerce channel of Drupal Slack (Wednesdays, 11 AM GMT-6). This gave Bojan Zivanovic, as project lead, a regular opportunity to coordinate our own development roadmap with the efforts of countless other developers around the world. The accessibility and consistency of these meetings contributed to our channel growing to become a vibrant support community for over 1,500 Drupal developers. This month we're expanding these "office hours" to include dedicated support hours from our core team. On Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11 AM GMT+2 and 11 AM GMT-6, Jonathan Sacksick and Matt Glaman will monitor the channel in their respective time zones to answer your questions. Even as we invest in premium support, we're working hard to maintain the same accessibility we've long had in our community support channels like Slack, Drupal Answers, and our various issue queues.

OSTraining: Add Custom CSS and Javascript To Your Drupal 8 Site

Main Drupal Feed - Thu, 03/05/2020 - 21:39

One of the most common questions in our training is how to add custom CSS or Javascript to a Drupal site.

The best solution, of course, is to add it to the theme (preferably a sub-theme); however many times site builders and editors don't have access to the codebase of a Drupal site.

To accomplish this, you can use the Asset Injector module.  This module combines CSS Injector and JS Injector from Drupal 7 into one.
