I use a little command line script to work with my Drupal modules. Some people like other tools like Drush, or some of the other update tools that are available. What I wanted is something that could pull down new versions of modules from CVS and check them straight into SVN. This is a small script that I use to do this- it has options to just download from CVS, update a module to a new release, and check your changes into SVN as well. I modified it a bit for public use- your millage may vary.
The Hub is a Drupal driven portal for human rights content. There are a variety of really interesting implementations of various aspects that it does, but the one I want to focus on is functionality that was just released that connects user uploaded content back to to the player.
This across the wire from Riseup....
Win a Server for Life (some restrictions apply)
The riseup birds have big big dreams! But, alas, we are kept super busy maintaining and improving the current services we provide. One thing we are good at is building infrastructure (and acquiring donated hardware).
So good, in fact, that we want to give some of it away in a contest we are calling the "Win a Server for Life (some restrictions apply) 2008 Extravaganza".
