Károly Négyesi: Where does migrate in core stand?

Posted on Thursday, November 20th, 2014 by Anonymous

Migrate is horribly broken! Migrate works awesome! Both are true. (Yes!) So Keith Dechant reported migrating a live Drupal 7 site to Drupal 8. Melissa Anderson is migrating a Drupal 6 site and gets mostly bugs. How is this possible? Well, Keith was coding his way around bugs, not just using what core provided (this should be obvious since we do not yet provide Drupal 7 sources in core) and Melissa had a site builder approach to it. Both of them are poised to contribute: Keith will share his code for Drupal 7 in the sandbox and Melissa files great bug reports and writes documentation with tips of how to use xdebug to find out what's broken with a migration. At this juncture if you are not prepared for either you will have a bad time with using migrate. Otherwise, see, it works!

Acquia: Custom Distributions on Acquia Cloud: Part 2 -- Updating with Drush Make

In the first post of this series on Drush Make we looked at building a custom Drupal install profile on Acquia Cloud using Drush make. In this installment, we look at managing and updating the code in your install profile and deploying it onto Acquia Cloud. Keeping up with new releases is one of the most important aspects of maintaining any site and leveraging Drush make can dramatically reduce the effort involved with that process.
