BarCamp Melbourne takes place in just 10 days. Creative Contingencies has thrown some coins in the hat to sponsor the event and help ensure it's free for attendees. Would-be BarCampers do have to pay $10 up front to secure their place, as spots are limited. Too often, people sign up, but don't show up. A small financial commitment seems to work to reduce the number of no-shows. If attendees do turn up, they get a refund, or the option to donate their fee to a carbon offset scheme.
More than once I've had people ask for help because the concept and naming of hooks in Drupal both frightens and confuses them. FRIGHTENS and CONFUSES. Sadly, this is a very common occurrence.
In order to address this problem, the SAC (Sensible API Calls) Initiative has been formed. Our first task has been to clarify and simplify alter hooks throughout Drupal. We've opened issue #1510984 on drupal.og and posted an initial patch, which addresses how the alter API is called.
