I want to give you the general state of the Firebird driver. At the end of January, I agreed to continue developing the Firebird driver as a maintainer. In this regard, I first took care of getting familiar with the code and an important bug (# 72175).
Obviously, this information has not got through to the PHP community for a variety of reasons. Unfortunately, the project seems to be pulled away by the vote to remove the driver underfoot.
It would be nice if someone could agree with me on the further steps regarding further development. I particularly need help with the following points:
- How will I be deposited as a maintainer?
- Who has commit rights for changes?
- How are changes in the documentation checked in? Here are my changes have not been committed for years.
- Where are the current development guidelines? I have an old book, but it does not seem to reflect the current quality standards.
Maybe it's to late. But maybe we (the Firebird and the PHP community) can continue on a common path.
