sounds fair enough (also gives anyone from the community who wishes to expedite it clear directions: 2 of the 3 are more tech-writing/lawyer tasks than coder tasks).

how many more RCs

maybe the original question (how many more RCs) is not a very good one - it basically asks you to predict the future, which is not necessarily an easy thing to do. OTOH, the answer ("as many as required"/"it's ready when it's ready") is also not a very good one - it does not point to any definition ...

Re: phpBB.com new design

Actually most our website is completely separate and running on symfony, our community forums run on phpBB. You can even view [or contribute via pull requests] our website source code at https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb-website and we are gradually moving more of our website over to the symfony site;...

Re: Core vs. Extensions

Examples of important projects which rely to third party extensions for the core/main features? jquery (specifically, the jquery ui package is 3rd party, and practically all other plugins are, too), mysql (specifically, innodb, arguably the most important storage engine used by mysql, was developed...

Re: Core vs. Extensions

there are two issues here - i'll relate to them one at a time The development team will package code into extensions as it sees fit. Control over said code is relinquished (or not) as the development team sees fit. i do not think this is reasonable. every piece of code should have (at least one) own...

Re: Core vs. Extensions

What should we name the Styles Team then? FYI the Extensions Develolment Team is a sub-team of the Extensions Team so it is under their control and supervision, not its own entity. Therefore the Extensions Team is involved in creating official extensions as well besides validating community extensi...

Re: Core vs. Extensions

I agree that in general, a more flexible and smaller core package is better and that we could really remove a lot and put them into extensions. The only issue is we're not properly positioned to maintain those extensions and I wouldn't be for removing features most of the time if they're not mainta...

Re: Core vs. Extensions

.... Development model as in: The developer team manages the development of the phpBB software (no matter who is writing/submitting code). Beyond that, MODs (extensions) and Styles that extend what the phpBB forum can look like and do are created by the community. (risking being called a nitpicker,...

Re: Core vs. Extensions

The only thing I would agree with splitting off would be polls, but even that is a stretch because a lot of boards use them. IMO, this is false logic. why the fact that many boards use something should be a factor for the question of whether it should be core or extension? this attitude is what i s...
