Just let you know that the "standard" is mamba's personal recommendation, never reviewed or approved by XOOPS Dev Team.
Come on DJ, why are you flip-flopping on this? Just two weeks ago you said:
Although the admin classes and templates might not respect BC/FC compact and the backend is designed differently in X3, it would be good addition to XOOPS users for the moment.
Congratulations to mamba and his module pack group.
and now you're trying to kill it? Why?
Code quality, compatibility and security issues should be taken care.
My challenge to you - if you don't like Mage's code, if you think, you can improve it, then please do so or let us know exactly what issues you see and we'll fix it! But DO NOT KILL every contribution the community is providing that is helping to make XOOPS better. This is Open Source, and WE WANT people to contribute, innovate, improve, so we can make XOOPS a better system.
