6,462 commits [1386463 – 1380001]


The commits are about 1000 more than ‘normal’ but seeing as last week we also sent out the reminder to please update your readmes to 4.5 compatibility, it was expected. Unexpected was the extra load possibly causing a 2-hour backup of processed commits.

Also with the 4.5 compatibility issue in mind, we made a list of all plugins and their ‘compatible up to’ status before we sent the email and the day after. For 4.5 compatibility, we went from 1.92% of plugins listing compatibly right before we sent to email to 3.36% within 24 hours. This is the first time we’ve tracked this, so the meaning of this is a bit up in the air.

Yes, we’ll make the data public. It’s really ugly right now and I’m not sure how best to store it for sorbability.
