Re: Future of bbPress
I think having gotten into plugin development with bbPress, a big part of what it needs is more documentation. One of the great advantages of WordPress is the ease with which additional functionality can be implemented, and bbPress is quite similar in that respect, but actually knowing how to implement it using the native functions available is currently a learnt skill, rather than something you can pick up from reading the Codex. As this thread shows, bbPress has a wide variety of uses and situations, so it’s important for it to be easily adaptable in order to grow.
Not too much to do with how bbPress develops as a codebase, but not too off-topic I hope
