+1 for honest reviews

I, too, was very glad to hear that even less-than-great books will be reviewed. It is not ok to publish bad Drupal books and expect people to buy them.

Geocoder and geoPHP looking for new lead developers

Thanks for the geo-themes podcast!

Just a quick FYI that geocoder (http://drupal.org/project/geocoder) and geoPHP (https://github.com/phayes/geoPHP) are currently looking for new lead developers / maintainers. If you are interested, drop a line!

Content and copy editing is critical

5

Hats off to Mike Anello for calling out a publisher for a poorly edited Drupal book. Of course, the author and the chosen technical reviewers of any programming book play a big factor in its quality. But the publisher itself is the final gatekeeper. Sadly, in the case of Packt Publishing, they are fast gaining a reputation for sloppy editing. One of their Drupal books contains so many errata, that when Slashdot published a review of it, they chopped short the list of errata -- a first for the Slashdot reviews section, if I'm not mistaken! It's a shame, because -- as Mike correctly point out -- this is going to reflect badly (though unfairly) on Drupal, as more publishers push Drupal books out the door as fast as they can, and readers end up frustrated.
