This is already planned, but we need to migrate some of the Forums data into the main Profile system first.

What things need to be migrated? An audit of those things would be good so we can start on this. Adding it to my list...

Replying to samuelsidler:

#129 is now fixed, so that's great. Other things to consider (from #1868):

  • The Activity page only displays the latest replies. There should be a way to browse all user's topics and replies.
  • Forum profiles should have UI in the forum language, whereas WP.org profiles are intentionally English-only. Merging them would require some kind of i18n roadmap for WP.org profiles.

@iandunn What do you think is needed to fix this ticket?

I'm not sure, I don't think I ever got too deep into this one. IIRC, there are a handful of things that people like about the Forum profiles that aren't supported by the BP Profiles, but I don't remember what they are (other than what's already been mentioned above).

Another case of "open sourcing" the profiles code used on w.org I'm afraid

There's plenty of bbPress and BuddyPress peeps about I'm sure would lend a hand to make w.org profiles amazeballs :)
