It seems there is no more discussion needed as the port to Yii is already in progress...

I wouldn't say this is a fixed decision, we are still testing. But so far Yii looks very good.

Out of curiosity (since we are also looking at PHP frameworks for another project), what was the real objection to Cake? Was it performance? What was the "last straw" that made the LS team ditch Cake?

My hunch says Menno is right on the mark.

I know there is only POC coding going on with Yii. I was busy with that same exercise. Any change of either releasing what you have, or providing an indication of which areas are being tackled so that others can be involved here in providing feedback about challenges in porting frameworks without overlap of effort.

There were some reasons. The most important issues were related to the fact that CakePHP is a not so flexible framework so at some cases you have to stick to their standards and can't work around it even if there are better solutions.

I think there have also been some problems with the support for different DBs and if I remember correctly, nobody really cared about the bugs we reported to the cake team.

Hello,

Did you verify that the Yii license is compatible with yours?

This is an extract from: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#OrigBSD

Why is the original BSD license incompatible with the GPL? (#OrigBSD)

Because it imposes a specific requirement that is not in the GPL; namely, the requirement on advertisements of the program. Section 6 of GPLv2 states:

You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.

GPLv3 says something similar in section 10. The advertising clause provides just such a further restriction, and thus is GPL-incompatible.

The revised BSD license does not have the advertising clause, which eliminates the problem.

Joer

What happens when a future version of Yii comes with a different license? Betting on forking? Or was the only problem that the current and future license of CodeIngniter is incompatible?

As long as certain scenarios haven't been challenged in court we won't know what will happen in our case.
