1. Standardize common parts of PHP tools and frameworks to provide a unified programmer interface to these tools, allowing more rapid development by programmers and versatility of their experience across frameworks.
  2. Make standards for things related to PHP development if such would benefit the community

In doing this, it is the goal to prioritize shortest-path standards. If a good solution already exists but is not standard worthy, the standard should be the shortest path to the ideal from the good solution so as to allow both

  1. The builder of the good solution to modify their tool to meet the standard
  2. The programmers using the good solution to have least surprise when using the standard

In general, the effort of PHP-SG is to improve the productivity and happiness of good PHP developers.
