Changes to use of tracker, ideas, and reporting process

Post by Marc » Sun Sep 10, 2017 2:14 pm

As some of you have already noticed all tickets which affected version 3.0.x were closed in the tracker. We declared bankrupcy on these issues meaning that we closed these issues without testing whether they are still present or not. If you think one of the bugs is still present in 3.2.x please feel free to recreate them.

This was neccessary due to the fact that the tracker had a bit over a thousand open issues which is unmanageable. If you opened a ticket for an improvement or new feature expect it to be closed in the near future.

We also discussed some new policies regarding the usage of the tracker while in Budapest. We would like to kindly ask you to read through the changes below:
  • Only open bug tickets in the tracker unless you are working on a feature or improvement (you will shortly open a pull request). All new feature or improvement tickets will be closed, if there isn't a pull request belonging to that ticket.
  • If you have an idea on how to improve phpBB but you don't know how to, or do not wish to implement it yourself, please use the ideas page on
  • If you would like to discuss technical details about a new feature or improvement to the core with the team or the community, feel free to open an RFC in the Area51 forums.

We appologize for the inconvenience these changes migth cause you, however, we feel that these changes were necessary to make the process of fixing bugs simpler thus possibly speeding up the process to get bugs fixed in the core.
