all of the website is on github, just not everything in public repositories
What you see on github (phpbb website) is just a symfony project. Anyone can create it in just few mins with composer or symfony app)bastones wrote: ↑Wed Feb 28, 2018 10:46 amThe principle of publishing the source code for the phpBB website isn't intended to allow people to make clone websites as you suggest, but rather to allow people to freely contribute to help improve the phpBB website, learn from the source code or even use components from the source code in your own projects. This principle is the same for any website that decides to publish its source code under a GPL or MIT licence. It doesn't give you the right to create a website to pass off as them though.
Of course not, anyone wanting to copy and pass themselves off as phpBB is up to no good in my opinion.
