Is Askbot going to be more modularized?

According to this question,, one pro of osqa is the code is organized into core and modules.

Is Askbot going to adopt similar strategies?

askbot might also spin off some modules so that they could be reused elsewhere.

Askbot sticks to django methodology more closely. If you want some custom functionality - just add an app for that.

For example - if anyone wants custom authentication - they should just deploy a custom login app and deactivate the builtin login system.

Also, it is possible to add hooks - called signals in django to perform specific tasks at certain times. Their placement would depend on the use cases, would be nice to hear from the users, because such hooks would need to be well thought through and documented.

I am in favor of adding targeted customization points and use as much of the Django functionality as possible, rather than inventing a yet another plugin system.
