Re: [PHPBB3-15928] Remove support for downloading backups

I would guess that it is being removed as a security/privacy measure, possibly connected with GDPR. There have been instances where "rogue" Admins/Founders have had access to the backup facility.

I know some there have questions about how phpbb support GDPR. Will it not be a good idea there stay something in FAQ so they get some general information?
What is wrong with clicking the "Privacy" link at the bottom of the page?

Chameleon Licence

I know I an good at asking silly questions so here is another one.

Why is Chameleon using the MIT licence when phpBB insists that the GPL-2.0-only licence is used? Is there about to be a change in licensing?

but certainly doesn't sound very useful for a forum that has thousands of posts, topics, and users where the data would be constantly changing.

Re: Offline support for 3.3 ?

So it is not really support but a copy of a site at some point in time which may or may not be relevant to any problem that the site is currently having - sounds like a waste of time to me!

Re: Offline support for 3.3 ?

Isn't "offline support" an oxymoron? If it is offline and cannot be accessed then how can you support it - or am I missing something?

Re: Moving developement discussion to Discord

Not sure as to where this problem lies, or if it is something that can be dealt with.

When a user registers on the phpBB Discord server some bit of magic picks up the user's avatar from the phpBB board. However if that avatar is subsequently changed then the change is not being applied to Discord.
