We are approaching 2 years now, and I am starting to question the decision of the phpBB Portal group to hold off development until 2.2. I understand the reasons behind waiting on development, but wouldn't it have made more sense to begin with a 2.0.0 portal? Important lessons could have been learned in this 2 year period to make the 2.2 portal the best it could be.
Just my 2 cents.
Since we are on this topic, I think the team should look long and hard at SEO with the portal. I personally would gladly give up some functionability if it meant Google ranked my pages higher.
