Problem

The Mollom module needs to be ready for Drupal 8 at the beginning of its release (a moving target, for sure).

Proposed Resolution

The module will need to be rewritten using the base user stories and test cases and guidance. The approach of a simple 'going through change requests' is too massive and does not take into account the fact that some portions of the module will need to be re-thought.

Changes

Minor - in general we are aiming for parity of API, functionality, and interface with the initial release. Larger changes to functionality, etc. will be made in subsequent releases but the aim for 8.x-1.0 is to simply provide Mollom functionality for Drupal 8. Some minor changes may include

  • Finally moving statistics display to JavaScript
  • Flag as inappropriate dialog implementation will be more native if possible
  • Will begin looking at shift to entities only rather than forms (but will not make this change in 8.x-1.0).

Timeline

Along with Drupal 8 release ;-)

It's not that far off. :) I'm going to take a stab at this. We'll see if that goes anywhere.

Any progress?

No.

I've started to take a stab at this as well. I don't expect I'll have something that runs without erroring out for another month or so. My initial approach is to just modernize the existing without rethinking the whole thing. I would expect a full re-think will become an obvious next step once done with the exercise of a straight port.

I may have some free time to help soon.

Hi there,
The start has been postponed for a few more weeks at this point. Would love to use this space to discuss high-level ideas, though, and we could move them into separate tickets for work once I get a basic structure built on the d8 branch.
