Re: Beware the 4.0

There was no NT 3.52. Perhaps you were thinking of 3.51. And NT 5 is Win2k. XP is NT 5.1. For the record, 2k is better than xp. Anyway, ground-up rewrites are not the easiest thing to pull off and the more complex a piece of software gets, the harder it is to rewrite. I would suggest figuring out b...

Re: / as host-port separator in memcache multi server commit

Wouldn't it be better to allow host-port separator to be configurable, perhaps via another constant, and default it to colon? This may be a bike shed discussion, but then who accesses memcached servers via ipv6? Also, documentation for memcached constants in docs/coding-guidelines.html should be upd...

Re: "British English" language name

Are you saying the following quoted text is not a rule that must be followed? For the English language description, the language name is always first and any additional attributes required to describe the subtags within the language code are then listed in order separated with commas and enclosed wi...

"British English" language name

The name of default language pack does not obey phpbb's standards for language names. http://www.phpbb.com/community/docs/coding-guidelines.html#translation, scroll to "How to use iso.txt". Especially if the only two available languages are default and US English, the selection box cannot be more in...

Re: Plugin code integration with core

I think that a system which does not require making functions 'hookable' in order for plugins to alter said functions' behavior would be preferred. Of course, if this cannot reasonably be implemented hooking is better than nothing. I was considering having empty proxy objects implementing __call mag...

Re: Plugin code integration with core

Hooks technically work but have several drawbacks. 1. Every hookable piece of code needs to have special code added to it to call the hook. Adding this code in many places is a lot of work. Adding it to every function is unlikely to ever happen. 2. Calling hooks takes time. If there are many hookabl...

phpbb quick installer
