git apply does not work from within the local checkout of an unrelated git repository

As freshly documented at http://drupal.org/patch/apply

git apply will fail to do anything when used within a local checkout of a git repository (other than the one for the project the patch is made for), such as if you are patching a module that is within a site that is in Git version control. Use patch -p1 < path/file.patch instead.

Vision for Agaric

draft. The goal is to keep working on this document until it becomes a) inspirational, b) collective, and c) operational. Yes, that's right, this is supposed to inspire, be written by committee, and have a practical handle on the nitty-gritty details, all at once. Starting with unattainable goals takes the pressure off!

Agaric's model is Free and Open: free and open standards, free and open work and management, free and open source code, free and open documentation. We prefer to take on projects that match that vision.

Business Idea: Restaurant/Diner Where Wait Staff Decide What You Need That Day

I think on the very high end this is done, where instead of picking anything you get a multicourse meal. (I may be wrong, i've never been to a place that fancy.) A diner or basic restaurant, though, where you don't get to make the choice, but the wait person or cook decides what it looks like you need, could have some

If only the indecisive could be counted on to decide to go anywhere...

Journalism is Communicating Facts as Stories

"Journalism is the work of communicating facts as stories. Facts do not compel people to action. Stories do. The ethical responsibility of journalists is to tell stories consistent with fact."

Questions for other Consulting Shops and Collectives and Freelancers

What kind of Drupal work do you most often do?

What kind of Drupal work do you most want to do?

Do you track your time?

If so, what tools do you use to track your time?

Do you track blatantly non-billable time such as reading Drupal Planet? If so, do you use the same system as for client/project work, and how do you categorize various non-work time?

Any conditions a client must meet for you to work with them?

What are your goals in life?

Do you see ways for your business to help you achieve these goals? If so, which ways?

Field labels should be number of items / plural aware

Ideal would be on the field settings, or possibly the field display settings, you can set what the singular and what the plural should be.

I don't think automatic adding of an s would work so well.

Point is you have a link field for entering web sites, it should say web site if there is one and web sites if there are multiple.

Use Drush to sync files from one site to another

Believe it or not, this is the function you want:

core-rsync (rsync) Rsync the Drupal tree to/from another server using ssh.

For example:

drush rsync @example.stage:%files @example.local:%files

Can't do remote to remote though.

Enabling and disabling modules based on environment

A drush command. Text file with modules to enable on dev, and then run it manually or somehow automatically.

drush? make text file with all the modules and git it to drush pm_enable

If we have a defined practice for environment-specific module enabling/disabling and i'd love to disable views_ui, update, etc. on live

It would be run after sync commands-- pull data from live, but then enable update on the test site, and all site building modules on dev
