this question is not well-defined.Shadow Reaper wrote: One question though which may seem dumb and all but, who is now in charge of phpbb?
what do you mean when you say "phpbb"? the code? the web-site? the people?
it is quite clear that acyd burn is in full charge of the code. there are other people in the "development team", and there are a few outside this team who also contribute to the code (shs, dhn, and a few others, i think), but acyd has full undisputed authority over the code, and this include olympus and phpbb-2.
other teams seem to be quite autonomous: mod team, style team, support team etc.
the web-site (not this one: i'm talking about phpbb.com) seem to be managed by the team, with most decisions received in consensus, but, from the look of it, the "focal person" seem to be shs`, who also function as chief administrator and team speaker (ie, he seem to be making all the non-code related announcements).
note that this is purely my understanding of things. i have no inside knowledge, and i may be wrong on some or all of the above.
the last time someone tried to create a well-defined "corporate structure" was long time ago, when the man at the helm was psoTfx, and the answer to the question "who is in charge" was simple, as he was in charge of everything.
atkinson's style was very different, so even when he was in the picture, he never was "in charge of everything", at least not since some very early stages of the project.
