I don't like it either - that's why I raised it. Is it a show stopper
discounting SMF from further consideration or is it something we can still
work with (the license) and keep it on the shortlist? No point doing a lot
of ldap integration work or whatever to only find out down the line the
license isn't tolerable.
I agree. This license makes it nealy impossible to use/distribute it.
I don't really see any restrictions on it's use, only it's distribution.
I just don't particularly like the language per se.

www.centos.org forum users ( Can you please fill this section in ? )
This is a task I can do. Where/how would you like the information?
Why not here in this thread first?
Here is a summary of issues raised by forum users so far:
- Persistent logins (users currently have to re-login every 24h)
- The remember me, keep cookie for 1 year option looks broken (relates to
point 1 above and is presumably a xoops issue)
- View/jump to first unread post within thread feature
- Remember read/unread posts across multiple PCs/logins (per user, not per
- Ability for users to change/edit their registered email address.
- Better management of subscribed threads
- Thank User button/feature

I think phpBB addresses nearly all of these issues. It scales well and
is GPL licensed. It also inculdes an easy update/patch management
system which is really necessary in my pov.
Can you (or anyone) point me to any good examples of phpBB forum
deployments where I could register to get a feel for it's end-user
features/usability? (I'm already familiar with some SMF based forums and
it certainly meets end user requirements).
