It pays to keep track

One of my oldest non-committed Drupal core features is the deceptively-simply named “Add Referrer Banning“.  It’s been around since 2005 when 4.6/4.7 was cool 🙂  It’s been re-rolled 5 times, the last to make it compatible with the HEAD that will be 7.x, that was March 3 of this year.

Since then core has changed a lot, and most importantly, the core functionality that I was hooking into to add the referrering banning has been partially removed.  So now I’m wiriting an even more complex patch; from 8KB to something around 30KB.

The lesson here?  Whatch the queue and re-roll your patches frequently!  Now, I need to get back to digging through system.admin.inc 🙂
