As noted in the PHPCommunity.org Blog, the 03.2004 issue of PHP Magazine (print edition) features an article that describes the first few months of the project. The article, PHP Community: Part I, is now available from their Web site.
This is a good article to read if you're curious to know more about the PHPC project or about my motivation for starting the project. If you're interested in being involved in the development of PHPC, please see my most recent status report and subscribe to one of the mailing lists.
Many thanks to PHP Magazine for coming up with the idea for this series and for making this article available for free.
