Does MyBB have future?
Regarding the security issue procedure, this is publicly explained on the site: https://mybb.com/get-involved/security/ - we do not want issues reported publicly without a tested and approved patch available as having them public could lead to further exploitation. This is a common industry practice that I'm sure you're aware of.

Regarding HackerOne or some such for security reports. We've discussed this kind of thing a couple of times as a team. The only thing that's put us off using HackerOne as far as I can remember off the top of my head is that there tends to be an expectation for bounties when using HackerOne - we can't really offer bounties given that we're not making any money or anything...

Regarding a product manager or any such: there is no product manager. There's Chris who pays for everything, then there's the rest of us. If anything, Devilshakerz and myself have the highest amount of access to things like GitHub, servers, etc. out of any of the rest of the staff.

The actual conversion to Twig is complete, and has been for several months now. Justin is putting some finishing tweaks on the new theme as he mentioned above. Once that's done, there are basically a couple of other tasks to complete:
  • Rebase the 1.9 code on top of the 1.8 code to include all the 1.8 bug fixes since the last rebase
  • Update the ACP to allow admins to edit Twig templates from there
  • Finish my SwiftMailer PR, which I've had sitting open and unfinished for several months as I got side-tracked
  • A boat load of testing

Regarding replacing inactive team members, I'd be more than happy bringing additional members onto the team. However, we need people to apply and to preferably contribute before applying. We've tried in the past to bring people into the team who've had no experience working on the core and none of them have ever lasted over a month or two. Adding that extra level of churn doesn't really help anybody unfortunately.



I'm planning to get 1.8.20 released during this week. Once that's released, Justin's theme PR will be merged as it stands, then 1.9 will be rebased on top of 1.8. Once that's done, I plan to either update my original roadmap thread or create a new one - I'm not sure which would be easier for people to follow and understand? I'm all ears on this. I'm used to developing, not managing or necessarily communicating intent/progress.

I fully sympathise with people being frustrated at our rate of development. I too wish we could do better, but as it currently stands I know I'm personally stretched pretty thin.
