Deployment and Development

An extremely abbreviated summary of developer's summit deployment breakout.

Josh Koenig summarized the discussion so far and tried to put a direction on it: we want to separate configuration from code and have a couple approaches.

Greg Dunlap (heyrocker) of Deploy module disagreed completely: there is no separation of configuration and content in Drupal, there won't be, and there probably shouldn't be.

And lots of clients, what they really care about, is content deployment.

UUIDs in core would be huge.

A problem with exportables is that hook_form_alter added configuration is lost.

Young Hahn: What's exciting about exportables, is that it's so easy.

Josh Koenig on the places in core using form_alter instead of underlying APIs: Drupal core right now, inspires "I watched it from watching you, Dad!!"

Kathleen: How about action items? What do we need from Drupal core?

  • UUIDs in core
  • export.inc in core

Dries Buytaert: I kept quiet, but i wanted to let you know i was listening and am very interested.
