Riding an Elefant:
PHP-FIG's challenges, efficacy and attitude
March 01, 2013 @ 11:02:34

On the "Riding an Elefant" blog (for the Elefant CMS) there's a new post that looks at some of the "challenges, efficacy and attitude" of the PHP-FIG (Framework Interoperability Group) surrounding their PSRs and general direction.

First, I should state that I'm not a member of PHP-FIG. I applied to be a member representing the Elefant project, but saw projects with similarly-sized communities rejected, so I wasn't surprised at the lack of response to my application. However, I do agree with the general goals of the project and think it has a lot of potential if steered well.

He then spends a good bit of the post talking about the three PSRs (autoloading with PSR-0 and coding standards with PSR-1 & PSR-2) and how he thinks the PHP-FIG has some "public relations" issues they need to overcome as it relates to their reactions.

PHP-FIG has grown rapidly since its inception, and with that comes the need to reevaluate and adapt. The PHP community is huge, and a group hoping to represent even a substantial minority of it will have to practice diplomacy and clearly state its intentions if it doesn't want to be misunderstood or cause alienation amongst the wider community.

There's also some good comments on the post so be sure to check those out too.
