Time - if you call it time, make it a time.
Authors - what is the difference between an author and a contributor?
Username - phpbb username? github username?
No support for phpbb version ranges?
As others said the spec should be in a plain text/wiki/html(?) format.
Why is it dual licensed as gpl v2 and mit?
Vendor: I'm assuming so but that will be up to the MOD Team. The vendor name idea was one of igor's and its in there but can always be removed. If its not going to be used in directory structure then it will be removed. Its helpful, keeps things organised and helps get uniqueness.
It can be a time, it is in the schema but I forgot to add it to spec (sorry). Time is one of the composer.json items hence its existence there
Username: Up to the user, phpBB.com would be preferable but not every mod author is registered on .com. This would be something for MOD DB Policies, not the spec.
Version Ranges: No as a each release is validated and tested on a single release, not on all releases. Same as MODX.
Spec Format: Yep, coming soon as I said. It was originally based on the MODX 1 Spec which is a PDF, not plain text. But an HTML version is also needed for the (phpBB) website.
Because GPLv2 for the bits phpBB has added but composer.json (which is takes large chunks from) is MIT.
Role/Status/Position Discussion: I would say role as 1) its shorter and its descriptive enough so I'll change that now.
