The New Directory Is (Mostly) Live

Sorry about the post-facto notice, there were a lot of moving parts and we got some things out of order when communicating between the multiple teams.

Current Status

  • Pending plugins are imported
  • Approved (but not yet committed) plugins are being imported
  • Rejected plugins have not yet been imported (though they will be … all 23k of them)

Known Issues

Beside everything listed on Meta Trac, we are aware of the following issues:

  • Header images are pixelated
  • Plugin submissions are disabled

Plugin Submissions are Currently Closed

THERE ARE NO PLUGIN APPROVALS GOING ON AT THIS TIME

You can’t submit a new one for approval, and we won’t be approving anything until possibly tomorrow at the earliest.

I will post here (make/plugins) as soon as we reopen and start things moving along, but please don’t ask for a status update. If it’s not posted here, we don’t have one, and you’ll just make everything take longer.

Plugins Will No Longer Be Rejected After Seven Days

Before you panic, we’re not going to reject plugins after 7 days anymore. The queue will be handled differently so having old plugins with no replies is less of a problem. Also? We’ll be able to rename your plugin slug before approval, so that will take care of most things like `google-analytics-by-faro` 😁 and other obvious typos.

However. This means the onus is now even more on you to make sure you whitelist emails from `wordpress.org` in your email servers. A high volume of people never see the first email (the ‘please fix’) and only see the followup of 7-days, so now you won’t be getting that anymore.
