Re: honestly..

Also, I recall the GPL saying in order to use phpbb's code, you have to give access to the FULL unaltered version too. Would this mean you would have to include it in your install package, or simply link back to the source of the original code? and where, pray tell, does it say this? i think you mi...

Re: Keep up the Good Work ..

Hate to burst your bubble, but most of those commits (all?) are 2.0.x bugfixes, not 3.0 work. Granted 2.0 fixes will result in a more solid 3.0, but the point still stands :P. wrong on both counts. from the last 20 commints, 20 are 3.0. how can you tell? look at file file version number of any file...

Re: Download

the article yawnster pointed to denotes cvs1.sourceforge.net as the cvs server, while the real server is cvs.sourceforge.net , aka cvs.sf.net the full checkout command (no need to login :P ) cvs -z5 -d :pserver:anonymous:@cvs.sf.net/cvsroot/phpbb co -P phpBB2 with a decent internet, if the server is...

Re: Question: what so bad about bug reports?

acydburn, please take this as a discussion, not an argument. the reason why many software teams have instituted a process called "code review" is because its a widely accepted claim, that the earlier a bug is discovered and fixed in the development cycle, the cheaper it is to fix it. nobody (at leas...

Re: Question: what so bad about bug reports?

Thanks for the answer. though i, personally, think this policy is not the best one for the project (after all, one of the most important advantages of open source vs. proprietary is the large scale peer review, which typically helps clean the code faster), i don't wish to begin an argument. i respec...

Re: Question: what so bad about bug reports?

well, as it turns out, i didnt only read meik's comments, but actually the code, too. temptation is great to show you why my question is still relevant, but this will be in effect a bug-report, something for which topics get locked here. i would still want to hear from someone in the know what so ba...

Question: what so bad about bug reports?

this is more to satisfy my curiosity than to try and change the policy, but i would really like to understand: what so sinister about bug reports? i am not talking about bug report of the kind "feature x doesnt work as i think its supposed to work" or "feature y doesnt work at all", but rather like ...

Re: Upgrading to phpBB 3 in the future

if i understand correctly, you are asking about an upgrade path from current development version of v3 to the final release version. if this is the case, the answer is simple: anyone who actually runs a "test" version of this board, should know enough to apply the required changes to the db structur...
