Hi! Community team!
I proposed before “I will post a WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. regulation OK / NG case study on handbook.”

WordCamp regulation OK/NG case study to handbook

After some discussions in the comments and in the SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/., we move on to the next stage.

Please share your experience in consulting solving problems and troubles regarding the regulation by commenting this post including following points;

  • Description of the case.
  • OK/NG, if any judge made, and the reason you made that decision.
  • Sharing cases without clear judgements are also welcome. I’ll bring them to the team discussion.


  • On the speaker candidate’s website, the organization team found links to a theme shop that does not follow 100% GPLGPL GPL is an acronym for GNU Public License. It is the standard license WordPress uses for Open Source licensing https://wordpress.org/about/license/. The GPL is a ‘copyleft’ license https://www.gnu.org/licenses/copyleft.en.html. This means that derivative work can only be distributed under the same license terms. This is in distinction to permissive free software licenses, of which the BSD license and the MIT License are widely used examples..
  • We asked the speaker to remove the link, and the speaker removed the link.
  • We welcomed him as a speaker.

I will put it in a Google spreadsheet.

The deadline is November 3.
