Submitted by frank kelly on Mon, 11/15/2021 - 14:52 I agree with the thrust of your article. However, you also need GREAT due diligence in considering and then investing in contrib modules. Who is (are) the maintainer(s)? How many commits have there been in the last year and five years. Look at the maintainers profiles on Drupal.org. Are they in over their heads with multiple projects? Look at the issue queues. How quickly do issues get resolved? Is there a stable version of the module? If the module is in alpha or beta status how long has it been that way? If you think you are going to proceed try a test installation on a test site. Do the installation instructions work? How well is the module documented, both technically and from a user perspective? In short, be careful.
