    Hello. i wish I got some notification of new messages in here.

    Anyway, yes, running a vB3.8 forum is perfect. And since it's already paid for, and there will never be any more official updates, well, there is no further money issue.

    I will host the site for free with no ads on my dedicated server if ever there is a need to cover the hosting.

    I have been working with Erik about how the vBForever patches interface should look and behave. We want a kickass interface that really makes you want to click "Install" when you see something cool, instead of hesitating or debating. It should be easy like the Apple App Store or Wordpress Plugins systems.

    @Ryan - that's exactly how I envisioned things. Sounds like PT is good so when it is released for the 3.8 branch I'll install it and we can get started.

    @mlx - If we enforce the usage of .diff, and only .diff, we don't really need SVN.

    When someone fixes a bug, they submit the patch, and everyone else can download and merge it into their dev environments, users of the service can also do the same.

    I think PT would be great.

    And yeah I was afraid SVN would be out of the question Too bad though, personally I hate the idea of starting developing something in a team without proper version control.

    @Eriksrocks - Being a PT developer, I'm inclined to lean towards that.

    Awesome job Eriksrocks, thanks for setting up the forum! Since its on VB, then PT would be a natural fit for a bug tracker.

    I've opened up the forum (link) so you guys can sign up and hopefully we can get the ball rolling. There is pretty much nothing there right now so please be patient as I get everything setup and get some basic content in. Once there is a small base of users signed up we can work on assigning other admins and mods.

    An SVN repository is not possible due to licensing restrictions, unfortunately. We would totally be breaking copyright law. We can all just get the latest source from the members area, so really I don't think it's that big of a deal.

    @Ryan - in an idiot move I just realized that the PT release on vB.org is only for the 4.x branch. I submitted a support ticket and was told that PT for 3.8 will be released as an open-source addon on vB.org as well, and that this is supposedly being prepared right now. "Andrew is hoping to have it released over there by next week." So we could either wait for Project Tools or go with some other bug tracker, possibly Redmine (it does look nice and clean).

    If you had to pick, Redmine or Project Tools? (continued in next post... stupid character limit)

    I'm sorry if this has been brought up elsewhere already, but what about running our own SVN repo? SVN access for vbforever developers and developing purposes only of course, but would that already be breaking all kind of laws and license agreements? I mean we'd need something like this if we want to get things going seriously.

    And yeah, a vB 3.8 forever site should be running nothing else than vBulletin 3.8 as a forum software.

    Any bug tracker can work for me.

    Seriously - a vb38 forever forum should be running on 3.8, otherwise its a bit of a joke.
