Official or Not Official - xoops_version.php

In a xoops modules xoops_version.php there is a flag called official. Official modules like the ones from chronolabs are donated modules for inclusion as module packs with xoops, this is what the official flag is for.

ie:
// From xoops_version.php in X-Reaggregator
$modversion['name'] = _XA_REAGGREGATOR_NAME;
$modversion['version'] = 2.19;
$modversion['releasedate'] = "Monday: 15 June 2009";
$modversion['description'] = _XA_REAGGREGATOR_DESC;
$modversion['author'] = "Wishcraft";
$modversion['credits'] = "Chronolabs International";
$modversion['help'] = "xreaggregator.html";
$modversion['license'] = "MIT see LICENSE";
$modversion['official'] = 1;
$modversion['image'] = "images/xreaggregator_slogo.png";
$modversion['dirname'] = "xreaggregator";


All www.chronolabs.org.au GNU Modules for XOOPS are marked official and will never be taken out of circulation. I suggest to module writers to review setting this flag before any final dscussions. ALL modules from the chronolabs systems that are marked this way are ideal and worked at for module packs.

I suggest when updating the module packs you at least include the chronolabs modules after all they are yours and official.

AFAIK it is nowhere used and thus only an indication in the xxops_version.php file.
Always thought it was to distinguish between offical releases and beta or other test versions.

That's my understanding too!

I always thought 'official' was used for modules released and supported by core team. Ex: mylinks, mydownloads back in 2.0.13 days or pm, profile in nowadays.

I don't see how Simon modules could be classified as official given the above perspective.

As a user, I have to agree. And I've never had one module from Chronolabs that ever worked as advertised

The flag was used to determine which module was listed as a core (one that was maintained by the core developer) module and not as has been suggested earlier, as a full, release or beta release.

It always struck me as funny though, as anyone could release a module with the flag = 1 and therefore would have the 'Official' status. lol
