Firstly, Happy New Year to all our friends on the Gregorian calendar like us. We're guessing that's most of you, but perhaps not all.

For us it's now back to the grind, but our first full office day was a Tuesday, so in the spirit of "business as usual" we did our Drupal contrib hour. Here's what happened:


Worked on tidying a new module for Drupal Commerce, integrating it with the HSBC payment gateway in the UK. We intend to release this soon, just need to finish testing it and get it through the new module approval process on

I rolled a release for Drupal 6 and Drupal 7 of the Nagios module to fix some annoying bugs. I also did some more work on the Drupal 7 port of i18n Auto Translate.


Tackled a number of LinkedIn module issues, including better handling of the Oauth library path, caching enhancements and tidying up tokens when a user is deleted.


Continued with his work on the Noderefence Variables module's Drupal 7 port, he's gunning for a release soon. Next week means re-writing some of the docs, as the way nodes are made available to templates has changed somewhat in Drupal 7.

Worked on several LoginToboggan issues again and submitted a patch for review.


Believes he is now only a week away from an initial Pay Wall module release for Drupal 6, at which point he can start the Drupal 7 version. Exciting stuff!

That's all for this week. Don't forget to use the #contribhour hashtag and let us know if you decide to join in. The more the merrier!
