Re: [PHPBB3-15928] Remove support for downloading backups

There already is a "Can backup/restore database" Admin permission but that no affect if the user is a Founder - and that is what this change is aimed at preventing.

I would prefer a change where there can only be one Founder as that would get around all of these types of problems.

I know some there have questions about how phpbb support GDPR. Will it not be a good idea there stay something in FAQ so they get some general information?
What is wrong with clicking the "Privacy" link at the bottom of the page?

Chameleon Licence

I know I an good at asking silly questions so here is another one.

Why is Chameleon using the MIT licence when phpBB insists that the GPL-2.0-only licence is used? Is there about to be a change in licensing?

but certainly doesn't sound very useful for a forum that has thousands of posts, topics, and users where the data would be constantly changing.

Re: Offline support for 3.3 ?

So it is not really support but a copy of a site at some point in time which may or may not be relevant to any problem that the site is currently having - sounds like a waste of time to me!

Re: Offline support for 3.3 ?

Isn't "offline support" an oxymoron? If it is offline and cannot be accessed then how can you support it - or am I missing something?
