 Thanks for the feedback, henrywright.

 > Will there be a template hierarchy for this?

 Not for 1.8. We're not providing any additional enhancements for bbPress
 1.x. As for bbPress 2.x (the plugin), that'd fall under your #3, but it's
 not slated for this release.

 >  noticed that the templates for the registration page (index-
 register.php) and activation page (index-activate.php) are filed under
 members (buddypress/members/*.php)

 These were moved to `members` in 1.7 bp-legacy. I think the idea was to
 get rid of an unnecessary template directory. bp-default still has the old
 format, for backward compatibility reasons only.

 > Some plugins use the plugins.php file to output information, will this
 be in the hierarchy e.g something like buddypress/plugins/plugin-{plugin-

 This is a great suggestion. It's too late to do this for 1.8 (and also
 there are probably going to be some technical hurdles to making it work,
 because BP doesn't have a reliable way of telling which plugin is calling
 a given template), but I'm going to move this ticket into the 1.9
 milestone and rename it to reflect the suggestion. We can talk about it
 more in the next cycle.
