Reviewing the Revamped Guidelines

Thank you everyone for being patient about this.

This summer was spent re-writing and editing and tweaking the guidelines. I ripped them down, sat and spelled out what they meant, then I rewrote them to be more clear. Then I got the plugin review team to review the changes. Then I had a group of people at WCNYC Contributor Day review them.

Finally, I moved it all to a GitHub repo and started to ask smaller groups to review it. Then we had a quick rebranding and that all brings us here.

I would like everyone in the community to read these proposed updates to the Plugin Directory Guidelines.

WordPress.org Plugin Guidelines

At the risk of sounding trite, pull requests and issues are welcome.

If you feel a guideline’s explanation is unclear, please create an issue or a pull request with what you feel should be changed and why. All grammar/spelling corrections are greatly welcome. We’re trying to write these for all levels of developers, as well as people who may not speak English proficiently. Using words like ‘obsequious’ should be avoided (nb: That’s mostly to me who uses those words regularly).

All feedback should be opened as issues in the tracker.

Let the games begin!
