Open Source **must be** delivered via a licensing model, see GPL. from the start, please feel free to follow along and contribute on Meta Trac and in the #meta Slack channel.
Milestones are scheduled every two weeks to have short time spans to plan out, with weekly chats in between to keep each other up to date. All chats will happen in the #meta Slack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. channel, Tuesdays, 17:30 PT. The first milestone is slated for March 1, with the goal to get a minimal viable product off the ground. Namely creating a custom post type WordPress can hold and display many different types of content. A single item of such a content is generally called a post, although post is also a specific post type. Custom Post Types gives your site the ability to have templated posts, to simplify the concept. to save plugins in, getting
readme.txt parsing right (and save the results in the plugin’s post content), as well as displaying plugins in a basic way on the front-end.
