Updating Drupal core with bash and drush

Yesterday, Drupal 7.28 was released.

People rush to upgrade, knowing that there will be a tranche of bug-fixes that may resolve longstanding issues.

People hesitate to upgrade, because updating Drupal core is not as simple as we'd like.

Other times, the core update is a security release, and you can't afford to wait.

This does not need to be painful!!

1 Samuel links back into Judges

Thu, 08/05/2014 - 10:18 -- James Oakley

I've never noticed this before. Sometimes, you notice something in the Bible, it's then so obvious that you wonder why you didn't see it there before. That's a good sign that it's on the right track - it's noticing what's there, rather than reading in things that are not there. It also means it's highly likely that lots of other people have seen it before, and that I'm just playing catch-up - so there are no claims to originality here.

The opening of the book of Samuel anchors the book firmly in its context, as a book following on from Judges.
