Is this for real?!

Post by trenzterra »

Monitored the phpBB2.2 CVS today, and came across this:

http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/p ... B2/mcp.php" target="_blank
Revision 1.58 - (download), view (text) (markup) (annotate) - [select for diffs]
Thu Jul 8 22:55:25 2004 UTC (9 hours, 48 minutes ago) by acydburn
CVS Tags: HEAD
Changes since 1.57: +134 -654 lines
Diff to previous 1.57
nooooo.... the mcp is gone. Yes, we now rely on the good will of our users, no moderation anymore.

buhahaha buhahaharrrr harrr
So will there still be a MCP in 2.2 or what will be replaced with?

We no longer believe in the facistical bastardization of moderation. Everyone should be able to say what one wants wherever one wants without feeling the freedom hating breath of a megalomaniacal moderator in one's back. In fact we are even renaming the Moderators group to "Rumsfeld's bitches".


PS: Please read the following checkins. ;)

I didn't followed the whole story, what was previously previewed for the MCP and what is now not longer developped?

I'd need to look more closely at the checkins to be 100% sure, but broadly speaking, the way the content of the MCP is generated in terms of modules has changed.

The CVS comment probably reflects the fact that so much of mcp.php has been deleted. ;)

Ok, because what I understood from what dhn said, is that there will be no more moderation in 2.2 8O :mrgreen: .

I guess that was ironic :P

I have just looked trougth the CVS now, what an amacing work acydburn have done!!! Thousand of thousands lines of code have changed/become added! There hasn't been any CVS-checkins for a long time, so I guessed they were on vacation or something, but now I see that acydburn just wanted to finish things before he let us know. That's great!!!! :D

No CVS checkins does not mean that developers don't work. They don't commit each and every line immediately after they wrote it.
