You are all welcome!

The setup is seemingly complex, but as I’ve gone through it I understand it thoroughly.
It’s complexity of using links actually makes it easier to do upgrades than it appears.
You can upgrade one language BB at a time as each has a separate mySQL database and directory
with links into the phpBB version. phpBB packages provide a database update procedure.

Next steps in the next couple of months:

(1) Update the TEST instance to phpBB 3.2.4 (released less than one month ago.)
(2) Add RU language BB instance. (We have a few people who will support this BB.)
(3) Update each BB instance in co-ordination with NL administrators.
(4) Can we resurrect support for the ZH language instance?
