Re: Event Sourcing and CQRS

phpBB.com's database is around 8GiB (That includes the CDB and other pages ofcourse, but we are not using the database for search but are using sphinx instead). You should not forget that phpBB would require a huge amount of events. It is not just posting/editing/registring, but also all actions in ...

Re: Some questions on Symfony

Also, you should look in your Auth plugins if you want custom authentication, instead of overwriting existing links

Re: [GSOC] Add ability to tag specific users in posts using @

Thanks for posting it Vishal :). I have looked into it a bit more as well, and I think there are two drawbacks in mention.js; It hasn't been updated in nearly 4 years. I think we should prefer libaries that get updated a bit more often, even if that means the resulting libary is much larger. It has ...

On the other hand, since the installation works even without a config.php file, why is there an empty one in the update package ?
Only in the full package there is a empty config.php?

Re: Which IE versions should we kill?

Any new style should aim at supporting only supported versions. The average lifetime of a style should nowadays be longer than that of a browser version. Therefore I'm all for dropping support of IE9 & 10. In general yes, but I think we really should also look at some usage statistics before making...

Re: Text formatter differences

The URL problem will apply for a lot of posts, so adding a bunch more is not that much of an issue in my opinion. You can always try to do something with a custom BBCode which you replace somewhere in a event, but I don't think you can really do that (Without much hacking) in 3.1. For validating I s...
