Following up OSCON 2010, we have opened up a new contribution type in our customization database called "Bridges and Integration." It is our hope that we will have a variety of officially maintained Bridges available as well as allowing the community to create them too.
Submitting a bridge will work just like submitting a regular MOD, but with some slightly different packaging guidelines. The code will then be checked for security vulnerabilities and tested to ensure it is functional. If a bridge you are creating is still in development, post about in the [3.0.x] MODs in Development, only add "[Bridge]" after the progress prefix, much like this example.
This is amazing PHPBB is getting more powerful. What do you guys think?
