What should I do? Continue using bbpress or not?

  • I wanted to use bbpress because I thought it was really simple to use and it was easy to integrate with wordpress. I’ve been looking at some posts recently and I get the idea that bbpress isn’t being actively worked on and that this Mat individual wants to abandon this project (?)

    Is this the person who made wordpress really great?

    Is this a good reason not to continue using bbpress? Is bbpress going to die out if Mat doesn’t work on it?

    i understand these may be silly questions, but I am not trying to make a joke of things

    We’re trying to get 1.1 release out, can’t say much about it. There are only 7 tickets pending.

    Nope, it is :)

    …and that this Mat individual wants to abandon this project

    Nope. Matt wants to convert it to a WordPress plugin.

    Is this the person who made wordpress really great?

    He’s one of the 500+ people that have contributed to WordPress.

    If bbPress works for you, then use it :)

    If it doesn’t, then don’t.

    bbpress is open source software, it’s not going to die. As long as you’re ok with a minimum year between releases, and a project lead who refuses to answer any questions or pass on any information (and most people are) then you’re fine with bbpress.
