    1 It's all about deciding what to integrate, and what to separate. The bb's have historically been kept at arms length everywhere on WordPress.org, with links in the footer only being added as recently as 2012. The fact that there is a BuddyPress section in the WordPress.org showcase is an anomaly. I don't recall exactly who pushed for that being there, but at the time BuddyPress.org actually did have its own showcase which we took down because manually maintaining was cumbersome as sites would shift around their designs or CMS's.

    33My opinion is to keep BuddyPress where it is, and add a bbPress section. The greater part of the past few years have been spent improving integration of the bb's into the overall WordPress experience, and I think it's helped all of the projects equally (though the bb's benefit more in other obvious ways.) An example of this is having BuddyPress and bbPress plugins and themes available through WordPress.org rather than via their own repositories, but because those repositories have an API, those results can be made available natively on BuddyPress.org and bbPress.org.
