I recently tried the open source forum software phpBB the CVS version,
2.1/2.2. To my surprise, I've found that it's lacking PostgreSQL
support, or, rather, that its support is not functional.
After playing around for a bit, I managed to get a semi-functional
2version working, I went and had a talk with the phpBB people. Amazingly
enough, they refused to accept any of my changes in their codebase,
saying it's still too early for that and the developers will fix it when
they think the time is right.
The reason I'm mailing you is that I've managed to get a relatively
functional version of it and wondered if anyone is interested in
helping me further maintain/fix it, until the phpBB developers
consider it's time to support other SQL backends.
For those interested, I've put up my version up on CVS on=20
:pserver:anonymous(at)cvs(dot)wolfheart(dot)ro:/phpbb, the module being
phpbb2-pgsql, press enter for the password.
(For reasons beyond my comprehension at this late/early hour, cvsd seems
to freeze once in a while, when one tries to login, so don't do that :-P.
Seriously, though, even if it does break, there's
http://cvs.wolfheart.ro/cgi-bin/cvsweb/phpbb2-pgsql/ from where you can
download a tarball until I wake up and actually get cvs working
So, if anyone is interested, drop me a line. If you want to keep this
thread on pgsql-general, please Cc: me as I am not subscribed.
