> GL already runs just fine on PHP5.
That is not the issue. You may see how php5 can help - though the article is about WP
That's a big. "So?" What makes you think we (or for that matter Matt Mullenweg) don't know about these php5 features? ?
BECAUSE NO ONE EVER ANSWERS THIS SIMPLE QUESTION - SEE BELOW !
You do not seem to get it, right? How explicit does one have to be? How often shall I repeat myself? How loud do you have to scream to make your trolling objective 100% clear?
1: Geeklog "joined" gophp5 as I told you before (see my post above):
> We made a clear decision on the dev mailing list to go with the gophp5 movement as soon as it was announced.
We will not object to PHP5-exlusive code and will apply improvements to the code as it we see it works out best according to our individual knowledge and schedules.
2: We have already implemented PHP5-only code where it made the most sense (as Dirk told you)
3: We have FAR more pressing things todo ( ...than revamping the whole code at once) that give GL a much better advantage per hour spent coding than what you suggest. We are currently doing a config-managment, an installation script, Webservices, only to name the big things that are not yet 100% finished, the rest you can see in the history file in CVS in case you care. We have limited ressources, and the gophp5 action started only after the last release of GL. So obviously, we would not go for PHP5-exclusive code before that. So your argument, "As years fly by you cannot just sit and be slow to update your core. PHP4 has now been discarded, and PHP6 is on the horizon which discards register global etc." is just another sign of trolling. As if we still had register-globals on! As if the code or the site still has any resemblance to two years ago!
4. Thanks for your "> concrete suggestions :"
I would like to invite you to do some of that yourself. That way you can help us in improving the code in the way you expect it to be. After all, you seem to be an expert in several CMS'es, so why not do that comparative study? Also I invite you to write plugins for the favorite authors for example, and a patch together with config-options to allow deleting and editing of comments (please make sure that comments with replies are treated differently).
I dont have the time now. I have to travel for the next 4 weeks for business. Also, I have different priorities what should be done next in the code. When I am back I am happy to go through your code and the study and upload it to the CVS as soon as you get it working 100%.
thanks for your kind contribution to GL.
