My project was move all the data regarding sessions (is a user logged on, who are they, what page are they on, etc) out of the main database and into...

Re: New Admin redesign, see pic for draft, idea

Personally I like the idea, it's clean and fresh. Sadly, I doubt much of the team would consider merging it unless it was an entire theme for consistency. You might consider combining it with a whole theme such as 0mega . Anyway, regardless of what you do or don't do with it, thanks for sharing your...

Refactoring session class to make it more testable

So in order to make the session class more testable it would be advantageous to decouple some of the global state variablables out of functions that perform logic. Before: static function extract_current_page($root_path) { global $request; $page_array = array(); // First of all, get the request uri....

Unit Tests + Sessions: Any Requests?

Hello Everyone, I'm looking through and trying to improve test coverage on the sessions. I was hoping to find a bunch of issues I could test for on the issue tracker but I wasn't able to find very many. Is there any issues that sessions have had in the past that you want me to improve test coverage ...

Re: Inside: a benchmark of phpBB's performance under simulated load

Very interesting. What would be more useful would be some timers around the phpBB code so we can see which sections or queries are taking the longest to complete. This wouldn't be too difficult. My system simply parses the actual response so we'd just need to throw these lines around: if (defined('...

Re: Git push account - for shared work

This looks great, I am interested to see how well it works.

I always assumed you could add to pull requests by filing a pull request on the contributor's feature branch, and when merged it would show up, do you know if it works this way?

Re: Inside: a benchmark of phpBB's performance under simulated load

I think I'm starting to get the hang of this. I made some changes to my benchmark to get more samples. I upgraded apache and php to Apache/2.4.3 & PHP/5.4.7 to prevent those crashes I was getting before. Samples taken green: phpBB 3.1 blue: phpBB 3.0 total_pages.png Dropped requests green phpBB 3.1 ...

Re: [GSoC 2013] Improvements to Network Status Website

This is one of the better proposals that I have read on this site, it was pretty well written and clearly shows that you have put some thought into it.

Good luck!
