API to integrate PHPBB with an Web application

Hello:

I am new to PHPBB. I had a need to integrate PHPBB with my web application written in C#. Hence, I added a web API to PHPBB. I took the existing PHPBB code as the base and then modified that. This API has a separate set of files and does not modify any of the existing files at all. So, in a sense, this is not a 'mods' as this does not change the core functionality / code of PHPBB.

I think the API could be useful to others in the community as well and would like to share this with them. So, what are my options:

1) As per the GNU license, simply post the source code on my public website
2) Submit the API as a 'mod'
3) Create a new project on sourceforge and publish API there

I would really appreciate your thoughts.

Regards,

A SF.net project would be a good way to go.

Thanks a lot for this library! I will test it out now. :)

I am going to use it in my forum converter... Universal Conveter is still difficult to me.


Thanks a lot for your work. ;)
