Goal: Identify great ideas (and if possible code) from other FLOSS projects and implement them to Tiki.

Most web apps tend to have a small core and have features in separately installed modules. Tiki has an all-in-one model and has become the FLOSS Web Application with the most built-in features.

In general, members of the Tiki community don't understand why a popular feature is not part of the core download. In general, members of the other communities don't understand how all the features are bundled in Tiki and that it's not chaos :-)

Also, different software architectures result in having different things as theme vs a module. For example, in Tiki, themes are look & feel and presentation and don't have functionality. Thus, if you change themes, you never loose functionality. OTOH, you can't add functionality via a theme. See Tiki vs WordPress. In Drupal, they have modules for some things that we'd handle via a theme in Tiki. Ex.: wp_comments.

So let's take a look at the most popular features of the other most popular web apps, and see which ones ares interesting (and that we'll add to Tiki core). Related: Major Features Missing In Tiki
