Separate #phpbb-dev channel

Post by naderman »

Hey guys,

we are currently using the #phpbb-coding IRC channel on freenode for both development related discussions and helping MOD authors with code. Do you think we need to separate these two areas? We could open a new #phpbb-dev channel. Please vote :)

Voted yes. Having concurrent conversations about development and modifications is, as someone put it, awkward. To the person who voted no, why not?

I didn't vote yet. An upside of sharing the channel is that MOD authors who come there for support are more likely to notice and then help with development.

That's a valid point but I think I will be keeping my vote ;)

I'm not sure about what option to choose because while I haven't objections about opening new development channel I'm still thinking we should keep the private one for some sorts of inner-team discussions (security issues for example).
So if we just open new channel while having private one I'm for it :)

We can still keep a private channel for critical stuff, but we decided that we really want development to happen in the open. We want people to contribute, after all. :)

I've just created the channel. All development IRC discussions will now take place in #phpbb-dev on FreeNode.
