Sorry for such a newbie question, but I was wondering if there was a procedure for getting mods rolled into the production phpBB code (with the author's permission, of course)? It seems to me that there are at least a couple mods that are very (extremely) popular and the base product and other mods could benefit from this.
An example might be the Profile Control Panel. Of course, the author might not want to have it rolled in, but I am just presenting it as an example that most here might be familiar with.
Oh, I should say that this is not intended to be any reflection on the authors of phpBB. It is awesome "out of the box", but I ask to help me understand how mods and "production code" are related and if they ever merge.
Hmmm, another reason would be because of inter-mod interactions as more and more mods are incorporated as users modify phpBB. Though I guess that this could be reduced by a different mod application methodology, but I am unclear what that might be. I am especially interested because I have found over 20 mods I want to apply to phpBB, but I worry that incorporating that many could have serious consequences.
Anyway, thanks for your consideration and patience. I would also appreciate it if someone would move this post to the correct forum if I have guessed incorrectly.
PS. I did do a search to see if I could find a similar post, but didn't. Thanks.
