theFinn: return to development?

Post by yexusbeliever » Mon Apr 09, 2007 2:44 am

I am not too sure what's the current status with the development team here. I do notice one thing is that those who were involved in the development of phpBB and left has the title "valued contributor" when you see them on the memberlist. I check with theFinn and I know that he is the main guy who founded this project, but I thought he had left the project long time ago. So why does he still have the title "Project Manager"? And the last he appear on phpBB.com is on March 2007, which is quite recent.
hmm....

What does he do? Since Acid Byrn does the coding, does he just manage the project's direction?

I think you'll find there is more than just Acyd Burn doing the coding as well :)

Please correct me if I'm wrong but I think that the only (real) project manager currently is SHS` and that theFinn have kept his Project Manager rank because he's the founder of phpBB (and the one who wrote primarily phpBB 1.0). So it looks more like an honor rank :) (after all, he's not just a "valuable contributor"...)

TheFinn is the project founder and manager, and as you can see from the domain ownership he is still very much part of phpBB, just because he is leaving the current management to SHS does not mean he is no longer a team member and his rank is not just a trophy rank I am sure ;)

Yes I know he's still the domain owner but that does not mean he is still "active" (IMO, and from what I saw on *.phpbb.com websites for some years :)).
Maybe SHS` or theFinn himself could enlighten us :)
