End of Life and GDPR

If you're reading the community site these days, you certainly noticed that not a single piece of significant content was created since 2015, and not much since 2013.

Whatever this may mean for PHP-GTK itself is another issue, but for the site itself, it means it ceased to be relevant about 5 years ago, and it's time to move on for the site members. Since the site contains non-anonymous user, it will fall under the new EU GDPR regulations entering into force on 2018-05-25, and there is no point for me to spend time on evolving the site towards compliance when no one is actually using it.

So here is the EOL announcement: the site will be shutting down on 2018-05-24 and its data will taken offline.

A static version of the articles may be published again at some point here or elsewhere, but I wouldn't hold my breath on it. So if you have even some interest in the site content, be sure to copy/paste the pages of interest before it goes dark on 2018-05-24. Or contact me if you want a copy of the files and content, or check my blog for newer content.

Thanks all for participating, it's been a pleasure while it lasted.


Contribution to php gtk2 manual. Why not available?

Why we cannot contribute to the online manual, it always says "The PHP-GTK manual notes system is off-line at present" in this address:

I mean kind like the web php manual which is full of user entries.

Thank you!

Recurring question!

This is a recurring topic on the mailing list. The answer, in short, is that :

  1. each of the few persons actively involved with PHP-GTK has already far too much on her hands with the code base to also care for the site.
  2. I could do it, as I am mostly a PHP-GTK user and not contributor, but this would have to be using Drupal, but... "heavy" frameworks are not compatible with the comparatively limited (wrt actual traffic served) server resources of if you checkout the source of the existing site, you will notice if is extremely leightweight.
  3. offloading the "notes" data from to a site like this one ( is not favorably considered by the powers that be, and would require some more code to be adapted on anyway, leading back to 1.
