Project Review Wednesday Explained
Many people don't know anything about the project review process on Drupal.org. Anyone can post code to Drupal.org, but before sharing it with others in downloadable releases, new contributors must have a project reviewed by volunteers, who check for basic understanding of how Drupal works, in code, community, and especially security. Because there are too few volunteers doing these reviews, there's a long backlog. Waiting isn't a great introduction to the Drupal contributor community. So in an effort to improve this, we're starting a series of weekly posts highlighting some of the awesome projects currently in this queue, awaiting your review.
There are currently 109 new Drupal contributors awaiting review of their first project. This is a great place to contribute to the community and learn about interesting upcoming projects, for example...
What's it Do?
The Basecamp module uses the Basecamp API to integrate the widely-used project management system with Drupal. It syncs Drupal and Basecamp accounts, displays tasks already in Basecamp, and allows creating new tasks.
This project should be useful to anyone using both Drupal and Basecamp, as we do at Aten. It could also be the basis of something like Open Atrium Basecamp Import for transitioning between the two.
Look Useful? Review It!
If this sounds like something you'd like to see readily available on Drupal.org, you should review it and help make that happen.
