Phil Sturgeon has a new post today looking at PHP-FIG and upcoming proposals the group currently has in progress. It also shares some of the problems with some of the current standards (including some amendments and replacements that need to happen).
I've managed to get myself involved in a lot of projects in and around the PHP community because I like to offer my advice, experience and time to trying to make things better. Recently, I've been putting in lots of time for bits around the PHP-FIG. Like it or not, tabs or spaces, PSR-2 or no, the PHP-FIG has had a huge impact on the PHP community and it's going to continue to do so. We have more PSR's in the works now that at any point before, and they're awesome ones.
He starts with a brief look at the next PSRs coming down the line: PSR-5 for PHPDocumentor standards, PSR-6 for a caching interface and PSR-7 with a standardized HTTP interface structure. He then gets into the problems around some of the current standards including the differences in autloading (PSR-0 vs PSR-4), the amendment process and a suggestion that PSR-2 (the coding standard) needs to be replaced.
