I have included the list of open issues and activities that I intend to carried out as part of the phpBB V3.0.9 upgrade below. See Closed Issues and Actions for details on the any completed work items.

The Core Build

  • The core phpBB code base is from phpBB 3.0.9 Download.
  • The following language packs from The phpBB Languages Repository. This presents a "user friendly" forms front-end onto any download so I needed to go through this manually to obtain the actual link and file information.

The pull and unpacking of these into the /var/lib/phpBB/ref309 is all scripted. But note the following:

  1. Support for the Catalan (Valencia), Spanish (Argentinian) and Spanish (Mexican) LPs seem to have been dropped at 3.0.9 so I will dropping them also. The numbers of users with these LPs as default are as follows: ca_pv (1), es_ar (32), es_mx (11). All are in the Spanish forum and only have a total of 59 posts between them. So I will also point all of these to the base es LP as this is the working language of the Spanish forum. This requires a one-off SQL update as part of migration.
  2. In the past I simplified these NL codes to zh_cs and zh_ct, but following the principle of "minimum change" to standard, I am dropping this and w.e.f. version 3.0.9, I will be using the standard naming. This requires a one-off SQL update as part of migration.
  3. One slight annoyance is that these kits vary in that the language and styles subdirectories sometimes 1 and sometimes 2 directory prefixes, but the unpack script handles this.
