Community Engineering Update – March 2019

Adobe Team

Pull Request Highlights


During the month of March 2019, we merged 591 pull requests across our repositories. We would like to extend a big thank you to all our contributors and would like to highlight two pull requests of note.


First, we merged a pull request from Eduard Chitoraga focusing on unifying how the EAV attribute code validation works. Thanks to this pull request, there is now a new class specifically for attribute code validation that is used in all places that attributes are saved.


Then, we merged a pull request from Vitaliy Boyko which updated the way product URL rewrites are created and deleted. This pull request updated the process so that now the product visibility is considered when dealing with the URL rewrites.


Thank you to both Eduard and Vitaliy for your hard work on these pull requests.

Contribution days


Lviv Unconference & Contribution day


On the 16th of March, Atwix hosted a contribution day in Lviv, Ukraine. During this event 15 pull requests were created across our projects. We would like to highlight the following from the event:

Contribution evening with Snowdog


On the 21st of March, Snowdog hosted a contribution evening in Poznan, Poland. This event was focused on giving first time contributors an overview of the contribution process. During this event we took 10 attendees through the steps of setting up their local machine ready for contribution, finding an issue to work on, creating a pull request and the review and merging process.


Contribution day Krakow


On the 30th of March, Strix hosted a contribution day in Krakow. This event was focusing on the Multi-Source Inventory project. During the day 5 pull requests were opened on the MSI project with topics ranging from GraphQL to performance.


One pull request to highlight from this event came from Bartek Szymanski. In this pull request, Bartek created a new module to add GraphQL support for the inventory module.
