MySQL SOFT deprecation:

  • function pages should include warnings, with a link to api.choosing
  • function pages should include link to alternatives, e.g., mysql_connect() → mysqli_connect()
  • ext/mysql/migration should exist, with mysqli+PDO_MySQL examples

PHP.NET update:

  • mysql→mysqli migration, where appropriate. Begin with master.

Notes about this TODO

Some of the items here are brain storms so could be crazy, may never happen, others may do, etc. So feel free to comment. Most (or versions of) will be done though… but when? Soon hopefully.

  • Rewrite the Doc HOWTO *progressing*
  • And everything else I promised to do during the next year as seen here: (add these as separate items)
  • Setup wiki ACL *we moved to another wiki*
  • Translations
  • Standardize titles for every extension, book.xml/reference.xml bug report
  • extensions.xml.php update, deal with missing reference.xml/book.xml
  • Ask people to review new ref style, and write docs for it (internals and general) but have one good example first
  • Remove PHP 3 stuff, update faqs
  • UPGRADE 5.3 document *started here*
  • Deal with version information, split up, allow static info as source can be wrong
  • Add PEAR Channel support to PhD, install MySQL on PB11 to do so

  • Update haru docs with missing roles, make it a good OOP doc structure example
  • Update SPL docs to new doc style and add missing roles, encourage editing
  • Remove dead deprecated extensions as per this email
  • Rewrite include/require docs, consider splitting file up like types.xml was
  • Update all orphan notes *progressing*
