Re: "Remember Me" checked by default

You should be working from the use case. Checking or unchecking remember me option is a means, not an end. The end is staying logged in for the desired period of time. If you want to be remembered, checking that box is done once per system installation. You do not log in daily if you are remembering...

Re: "Remember Me" checked by default

I would support, instead of the changes proposed here. using session cookies (the ones without an expiration time) and increasing session length by default. Say, double or triple it from its current value.

That simply refers to the fact that area51 runs current development code of phpbb itself.

Re: Advantages of Font Icon Replacement

OFL has some confusing wording and is somewhere between questionable and gpl-incompatible. I would suggest asking font authors if they intend for their fonts to be usable under gpl, and in that case perhaps dual-licensing fonts under ofl and gpl. Keep in mind phpbb requires either gpl v2 or gpl v2 o...

Code incorporated into phpbb must be available under either gpl or a gpl-compatible license, of which there are many.

Re: Free phpBB mode for website safety

Your phpbb plugin must be licensed under gplv2 only (not v2 or later), same as phpbb's license.

Is your post related to phpbb development in some way? Modifications should be submitted to customization db on phpbb.com.

Re: Post/Reply by Email - Integration With Email Lists

Both release managers opined that this should not be a core feature. The remaining options are an officially-endorsed extension or an unofficial extension. An unofficial extension is just like a modification in terms of ownership/responsibility (author can do whatever they want) but using the extens...

Re: Post/Reply by Email - Integration With Email Lists

Accepting email replies as anonymous posts seems straightforward enough. Accepting new topics via email can be technically implemented with not much more effort and it would still technically make sense, but it ought to be tricky to use. In mailing lists, there is one email address for the entire li...

Re: What are the imagesets still doing there?

If there are any unused files in the source tree they should probably be removed.
