bp-dev.org vs. buddypress.org – why have two

    I must admit that as a new user I’m quite confused as to the difference between bp-dev.org and buddypress.org. I understand that bp-dev offers some extra plugins, but why are those plugins not just offered here on buddypress.org?

    For example: Which of the forums to use when and for what?

    It seems like a bad idea to disperse the BuddyPress community between two sites, when the community isn’t that big afterall.

    There is only one official site for BuddyPress discussion and that is this site.

    bp-dev.org is a private site run by one of our moderators–Nicola Greco. He started it after he personally created several, early plugins for BuddyPress. I believe it served as an early plugin repository before BuddyPress plugins were hosted on WordPress.org.

    So the bp-dev.org site is redundant?

    No, it is not redundant? It is just an unrelated site. It is Nicola’s personal site. The content is different. You are free to sign up at bp-dev.org if you need to ask support questions about any of the plugins hosted there.
