Cold numbers:

52 issues have been successfully integrated with 18 rejected and 6 delayed. That is 74% success, we need to improve!

Notes:

Next week integration cycle will be the last one before packaging and releasing Moodle 1.9.20 and 2.1.8 (only security fixes), and also 2.2.5 and 2.3.2 (fully supported).

Some interesting stuff is happening behind the scenes, that will debut with Moodle 2.4 later this year. Time runs so, the sooner things land, the better. Code freeze is planned for early November. And the release, on month later.

It's important to take a look to the development documentation that you need to complete, to allow everybody to know how to play with your awesome code and APIs. Please, do it with the care you would expect from other Developers.

Today, for some hours, moodle.org has been kaput, down, unreachable, dead. surprise

The cause for such a disaster, discovered after a rigorous investigation by the Moodle MiB, has been an elephant that accessed (flying, through the window!) to Moodle HQ and, with the help of 2 dangerous peanuts, threatened everybody, causing the caos and the mass hysteria, until our beloved System Admin, Matt Sharpe, was able to tame it from Sidney, only armed with his remote console. Kudos for Matt!
