The PDO v2 Proposal
Jan 25, 2008 @ 08:58:00

Wez Furlong posted a request for comments to the php.internals and php.pdo mailing lists yesterday about a new ly proposed update to the current PDO functionality - PDO 2. He just wants to clear up a few things...

There were three steps they would need to make to push things to version two (documentation, define scope/direction and organize data provider integration methods) and the proposal that has caused a huge stir in the community - the idea of requiring a CLA contributors would need to sign.

Comments to this point from the community include:
