How Do You See The PHP-FIG?

Fram a Reddit discussion; please reply over there.

There are some ongoing discussions on the PHP-FIG mailing list about, among other things, how the FIG is seen by the wider PHP community.

Since an earlier discussion pointed out that perhaps the FIG, while well-known, don’t do enough “active outreach”, consider this an attempt to “reach out.”

Do you think:

  1. The FIG is a bunch of self-aggrandizing elitist jerks who couldn’t write a competent or useful “proposed standards recommendation” if their lives depended on it, and should disband entirely.

  2. The FIG, while aware that the wider PHP community is watching, writes PSRs primarily for itself, and others can adopt or ignore as they wish;

  3. The FIG has become the closest thing to a userland standards group that the PHP community has, and should accept that role;

  4. Some other opinion?

Thanks in advance for your thoughtful, considered opinion, whether positive or negative.

Again, please comment at Reddit.
