The motivation for this post are these two use cases.

which revolve around syntax changes from Apache 2.2 to Apache 2.4.

In Apache 2.2 the syntax is:

Order allow,deny

is changing to:

Require all denied

in Apache 2.4

Now if you are using apache 2.4 and you have the mod_access_compat enabled then that does not really matter, but if it is not enabled and you use the old syntax it will break your site.

If you are developing for backdrop core gihtub.com/backdrop/backdrop the process is to fork the backdrop repo git checkout Issue#/human-readable-description-of-issue. {hack, hack, hack, hack} Fix the issue. Add and commit your changes to your new branch. Push your new branch to your forked repo on github and make a pull request (PR) against the canonical backdrop repo backdrop/backdrop.

So excited to announce my first drupal to backdrop module port redirect. You can find it, download it, and install it on your backdrop install here: https://github.com/backdrop-contrib/redirect

Of course special thanks to the drupal authors and maintainers of the drupal redirect module.

Working on this port was great fun and a great learning experience! If you want to work on a port you can find some guidelines and a nice video over at https://api.backdropcms.org/converting-modules-from-drupal. You can also get great general info at Backdrop CMS API

And of course one of my favourite parts of working on backdrop is the #dev team; special thanks to @quicksketch and @jenlampton for mentoring. Come join us on irc #backdrop channel on freenode.
