To repeat one of my questions which was not yet answered afaik.

How would one test this via system cron? I didn't see any specific code for this, so would it be something like "curl http://localhost/phpBB/cron.php

It's pretty clear that the dev team supports the proposal and the patch. As it seems to me, they have just been pretty busy, especially with both 3.0 and 3.1 to maintain / work on. While I agree that it would be nice to have all patches instantly reviewed and merged, it's a bit much to expect, imo. Give them a chance, blackmailing them will not help. Sure, it's easy to blame the dev team. But the fact is that phpBB is moving to become more community oriented. And this means that the community also needs to take responsibility to review the patches.
Your contributions are valuable, and I am sure they will be gratefully received by the phpBB teams and community. Just give it a bit of time and some kind *bump*s. This is surely the completest non-dev-member feature for phpBB 3.1 I've seen so far, and I have no doubt it will become part of 3.1. But for everything to work smoothly, both sides need to work together.
So please, do.
Not out of fear, not out of blackmail. But because we want ascraeus to be more than a pretty olympus. Thanks.
