Help the Symfony project!

As with any Open-Source project, contributing code or documentation is the most common way to help, but we also have a wide range of sponsoring opportunities.


"r1415: removed ?> from all php files" << why is this interesting ? Does it improve performance ?
Fix URL to "How to initialize javascript" "Clay to schema"
What does removing the closing ?> do?
The URLs "How to initialize javascript with json" and "clay to schema" doesnt work!
adrive, Markus: thanks, it's done
""r1415: removed ?> from all php files" << why is this interesting ? Does it improve performance ?"

Not closing PHP files avoids "headers already sent" errors caused by trailing whitespace in class files.
