I'm still running some Drupal 6 sites (because I'm waiting for the Migrate module to work properly in Drupal 8), and I notice that there are some modules in rupal D6 (like Views) which are still bringing out security releases. However, since the code has been moved off drupal.org, these new releases are not getting downloaded by Drush when I do a pm-update to install security releases.

Is there any way to tell Drush to look on Github for certain modules? Alternatively, is there a git command to do this?

  • Where is this Views version 6 Github repo to which you refer?

The git command is git clone. You would type:

git clone <repository-url> path/to/modules/module_name
  • The version of Views on github is indicated in the Drupal "available updates" report (I also have the "update status" module enabled, I don't know if this is relevant). Commented Jun 27, 2016 at 21:05
  • There is no easy way to integrate the git clone into drush I suppose... Commented Jun 27, 2016 at 21:07
