Drupal governance announcements: Coding standards ratified changes and ongoing proposals

rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.


The TWG coding standards committee is announcing two coding standards changes for final discussion. These appear to have reached a point close enough to consensus for final completion. The new process for proposing and ratifying changes is documented on the coding standards project page.
Official coding standards updates now ratified:
Prefer != to <> for NOT EQUALS
Stop disallowing camelCase for local variables / parameters
Should we require a blank line after <?php?
Issues awaiting core approval:
[policy] Define coding standards for anonymous functions (closures)
Add type hinting to function declaration coding standards – sidelined on discussions around how to handle versioned coding standards (for which there is a separate issue
Issues that just need a little TLC (you can help!):
[Policy, no patch] PHP 5.4 short array syntax coding standards – we just need some specific proposed language and this will be ratified
[policy, no patch] Standardize indenting on chained method calls is blocked on the related coder rule issue
[Policy, no patch] Delete permission to pad spacing in a block of related assignments needs more support – do you want this change?
These proposals will be re-evaluated during the next coding standards meeting currently scheduled for August 30th. At that point the discussion may be extended, or if clear consensus has been reached one or more policies may be dismissed or ratified and moved to the next step in the process.
