I know that an issue with modifications which annoy many users are the fact that they involve edits to files, and the nature of the phpBB upgrade system means that modifications would have to be re-carried out after every update.
I was pleased to see the beginnings of a phpBB implementation of the hooks idea that wordpress uses. However, at this stage it is very limited and has several rather obvious flaws. I'm aware that this system is not ideal for all modifications, however, if it only benefits, say, half of modification authors out there, it is a system worth developing further.
I'm not completely familiar with the developer-base of this project, but I was wondering if there is an individual actively developing this feature? If not, I'd love to put my hand up and start working on it. I'm aware of the issues involved in developing it, and I think I carry the same values as the phpBB project.
What processes are there in place to consider and then commit new features to the CVS tree?
Should this be posted in the area51 boards?
I couldn't find any obvious information anywhere about how to actually get involved in developing phpBB, or are you not open to new developers?
Most community ideas for in-development releases are discussed on area51
. The development team is constantly trying to improve the quality of the software, I feel that this can only be fully achieved if we listen to ideas like these.
, we will make the barriers to contribution much smaller for those who want to help. For now, please hang in there and throw your ideas at area51
