Follow-up to #2281691: User interface for migration-based upgrades

At Bojhan's suggestion, I'm opening up a core issue to point at front-end tasks for the D8 upgrade UI. The UI is currently being developed in the contrib migrate_upgrade module (to be added to core in #2281691: User interface for migration-based upgrades, hopefully by RC1), so the specific issues are not very visible to those looking for things to sprint on in Barcelona.

Things to know

  1. In the parent meta issue, I suggest starting at #2281691: User interface for migration-based upgrades, where the UI changes being worked on now are discussed.
  2. The current design we're aiming at, based on those recent discussions, is documented in a Google doc. Review that for the big picture into which those specific issues fall, and also feel free to comment if you have suggestions for improvement.
  3. For information on setting up and running upgrades from Drupal 6 or 7 to Drupal 8, see The documentation is getting some loving this week and is being refined as I type - if you find things that could be clearer, please give feedback at #2561243: [meta] Migration system documentation (or open a sub-issue for more substantial suggestions for changes).
  4. Besides working on actual code, the big thing we really need is for people to test the upgrade process with real-world sites! If you have a Drupal 6 or Drupal 7 site, please try the upgrade process in a development environment and report any issues you have!

Just a note for tomorrow's sprint - I'm on U.S. Central Time (7 hours difference from Barcelona), but will try to get up early and hopefully be in #drupal-migrate and the issue queue to help answer questions early in the afternoon there.

Drupal 8.0.6 was released on April 6 and is the final bugfix release for the Drupal 8.0.x series. Drupal 8.0.x will not receive any further development aside from security fixes. Drupal 8.1.0-rc1 is now available and sites should prepare to update to 8.1.0.

Bug reports should be targeted against the 8.1.x-dev branch from now on, and new development or disruptive changes should be targeted against the 8.2.x-dev branch. For more information see the Drupal 8 minor version schedule and the Allowed changes during the Drupal 8 release cycle.
