BP-legacy: split group single admin.php in separate template files (#7079) @hnla has committed this to trunk. If you have copied over `groups/single/admin.php` and made some changes, there won’t be any changes to your theme. You might want to consider, however, “updating your file/s to the newer modular markup to enjoy improvements”, @dcavins said.

strtotime() is evil don’t use it (#5781) @rayisme has committed patches for this ticket. He requests feedback on the `5781.mysql2date.patch`. “All of our `strtotime()` calls assume that GMT is the default timezone.

Date xprofile field enhancement (#5500) @boonebgorges has patch and sought feedback for:
a) modeling settings data on BP_XProfile_Field and _Type — @djpaulgibbs “It would be nice to pass the data to it to handle, if possible, rather than have to touch a global.”
b) what do we think of interface for date ranges? — @djpaulgibbs “The UI is nice”. @rayisme “I’m trying to figure out the use case for relative ranges”. @mercime reported a bug.

Group type frontend integration (#7210) @rayisme has a second patch which includes some new parameters to bp_groups_register_group_type() and which will allow theme devs or site admins to show group types in front end. @boonebgorges “Just browsing the patch, but looks great at a glance. I like the params as a way of controlling the behavior.”
