      Description

      Mike Worth had previously contributed and maintained a variety of projects which he passed on to Mark Johnson after a change in employment. Mike had requested to remain as primary maintainer. I've emailed Mike to see if he is willing to pass the maintainer torch on to Mark. With the release of Moodle 2.0, Mark is ready to make some of those updates available to the community but does not have the ability to modify the M&P entries. This issue is to track the various plugins that Mark is going to be serving as the primary maintainer. Peace - Anthony

        Added subtasks for individual components, think I remembered everything.

        Here are excerpts of the email reply I received from Mike Worth:

        "I've not really got the time to do any moodle stuff in the short or medium term ... I'm happy for Mark to take over responsibility for anything of mine he feels like; I'd guess that his familiarity with most of the tauntons-related code is now better than mine (plus I have effectively no familiarity with moodle2) ... feel free to ask me if you ever find a bit of code which is confusing, I'll do my best to clear the cobwebs and work out what I was thinking at the time. Mike"

        Anthony Borrow added a comment - - edited Mark - Here are links to all of the items that Mike was maintaining (there are 9 listed). I'll change the ones you indicated as subtasks but if you want the others as well or have comments on how to handle those just let me know.

        Mark,

        2068 = Block: Auto categorise grades by month
        2221 = Block: Create Parent Account Block

        I've gone ahead and switched these to you as well.

        Peace - Anthony

        Thanks Anthony,
        We don't use the 2068 or 2221 any more so I'm not planning to do any work on them in the foreseeable future. If anyone else is working on them and wants to become maintainer for them in the future, I'm happy for them to do so.
        I've updated the M&P entries to show me as the maintainer.

        Cheers
        Mark

        Mark - It is good to know that Block: Auto categorise grades by month
        and Block: Create Parent Account Block are no longer in use. I will switch those two back to being added by Mike Worth. Thanks for updating the M&P entries. Did you mention somewhere that Mike was the original contributor or person who add the record and that you are now maintaining it? When possible, I like to keep a little history there just to give name recognition to the original contributors. This can either be in the M&P entry or even a comment. Many thanks for picking up the code and helping to support it for 2.0. Peace - Anthony

        Thanks Anthony, I've added a note to each of the M&P Descriptions crediting Mike for the original work.

        Just so you know, my intention for now will be to host the updated code on Github and link to the repositories from the M&P entries, as this simplifies my work flow compared to committing to CVS. When I start doing this I'll update the M&P to make it clear that this is the case - the versions in CVS will still be useful for people using 1.9, although I won't be back-porting changes.

        Mark - No problem at all. Just let me know when you update the download links as the entries will need to be re-approved. As for using git, that is also good as that is the direction we are moving in anyway so you are just ahead of the curve. Peace - Anthony
