Modul Team - Which modules you like to see updated?
« on: May 14, 2015, 01:22:19 PM »
Hello together,

yesterday we had the first meeting of the module team together with developer team - for the conclusion just look here: http://forum.WebsiteBaker.org/index.php/topic,28331.msg198414.html#msg198414
As said there: The module team is no "closed team", so everybody can take part without "signing a contract".

One of the goals the module team will start with is updating modules to current WB version (right now: WB 2.8.3 SP4), but with reference to upcoming version like 2.8.4.

The updating of modules mostly will contain:
- Keep the ease
- Standardize the modules: Follow the Coding guideline, the IPO principle, creating a module (security) guideline
- Make the modules look more modern
- Make the modules more secure

Please consider the most important:
The module team is a community team, but it does not want to remove any module from an active maintainer!!!
So please keep in mind, we only can update and maintain modules, where there is no active contribution / maintainer (*) mentioned in the forum, in the addons repository http://addon.WebsiteBaker.org/, on AMASP http://www.websitebakers.com/ or other known addons sites, e.g. http://www.dev4me.nl/.
Active maintainer: I think a statement from the author, that he or she does not longer maintain the module - and after that nobody maintained it anymore - is clear. Not so clear is "missing contribution" - personally I think not contribution to a module for at least 1 year and the last author / maintainer not active in the forum is a hint, but not a certainty.
Also the license is not unimportant at all - not all modules are released under GPL!
If you are unsure, please contact the maintainer or us first!

So - which modules the module team should update?
Just to mention: The modules must be opensource, public and free of charge.
Please list here your most used and loved WebsiteBaker "upgradable" modules, e.g. 5-10 modules.

If you are a current maintainer / module author and some of your modules are posted here, please do not discuss it here, but contact me per personal message. The module team will check any contemplable module as posted.

The module team will then count all mentioned modules, prove if they can be updated / maintained in legal and technically belongs and then update the most mentioned modules. You can also post some wishes you like to see in an update - perhaps we (or you, if you take part in the module team!!!) can fulfil them, but of course without any guarantee.

The "voting" will close on Tuesday, 26th May 2015.

Great job keeping forward momentum going!

My first choices would be:
- WYSIWYG with History (this kind of backup functionality is essential, in my opinion)
- Folder Gallery
- Has Content
- Add On File Editor
- News
- Any News
- image Tweak
- Show_Menu2
- Simple Page Head
- Watch My Site
- jQuery/Library Admin

My favorits:

- CKE editor - prepared to be shipped with WB 2.8.4.

As for the other modules/addons, I agree with the above choices.

Some mods:

- Code2
- Download Gallery
- MapBaker
- Folder Gallery
- SimplePageHead
- LibraryAdmin
- Miniform
- SEO Tool
- concert calendar
- Members
- Droplets (from Bianka)
- Feedback or/as Guestbook


Backend-Feature request:
The changeable height of modules like code2 or wysiwyg could be savable.
Reason:
code2 knows only two heights, 3 lines or full height. But the code has often some lines more as 3.
The Wysiwyg i use sometimes only for one line (title h1). This is easier for the user as a code2 with html-tags. In this case i want a smaller wysiwyg-height. In other cases are 2 lines. So would a individual-height a nice feature.

I wonder who is in charge to update the "core" modules
- news,
- form,
- droplets?
In the last case (droplets) there is on the one hand the "old" version 1.2 which is shipped with WB and an updated version (1.7.3) with more features, which should be kept working.

I agree with all above, and I would like to add:


webbase-edit  or to upgrade an AFE to be able to change all files, not just modules and templates

the ones I'm using:

addon_monitor
backup           
ckeditor             
code2             
Droplets (with backup and import function v1.73)             
extcal
mpform
news
outputfilter_dashbo ard - and therefore practical_module_fu nctions which I would like to get rid of... ;-) sitemap
smoothgallery
wysiwyg_admin

I maintain some of them - for some others I have my own patches or they simply work for my purposes...

dbMultipleChoice (we need a Quiz module)

And a big wish is not a dispersal in many repositories like this:

http://forum.WebsiteBaker.org/index.php/topic,27155.0.html

http://forum.WebsiteBaker.org/index.php/topic,26709.msg183321.html#msg183321

We need a well maintained AMASP!
