Re: is "fork" a 4-letter word?

Currently it's nearly impossible to make a frequently updated phpBB's fork that returns some code upstream, because phpBB uses centralized VCS. It's impossible to copy a branch, do some big changes and return these changes upstream - the patch will be very big, changes not well-documented, and nobod...

All of the mails have r???? in their title (CVS has used 1.x numbers) and in one of them, Naderman has wrote "test commit on svn" in the log message!

Re: Dropped support of PHP4

Most hosts that are currently supporting PHP5 have 5.2 installed, and all hosts that will upgrade to PHP5 will install 5.2. Only very small percent of hosts still have PHP 5.1 installed, and upgrading it wouldn't be a big problem for them.

Re: Dropped support of PHP4

There is nothing wrong with supporting PHP5.1. The problem is that open source projects, to push webservers to do something, have to do it together, not alone.

Re: Dropped support of PHP4

phpBB2 has worked on PHP5, but you weren't supporting it. You can do the same with phpBB 3.2 and PHP 5.1 and join the GoPHP5 project. Any script, that can alone push the webservers to go to PHP5, doesn't exist. But when all most popular scripts will try to push them, they will just have to upgrade.
