Plugin Review Team Status: 27 May 2019

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WORDPRESS.

We’ve begun experimenting with a shell (bash) script to scan plugins for common problems (out of date scripts, including jQuery, hardcoded paths, etc.). Due to the diverse nature of plugins, it’s unlikely this will ever be as precise as the Theme Check, however it’s certainly speeding up many checks and making it more reliable that we catch code that shouldn’t be in a plugin at all.

We’ve also resumed processing bounced emails, hence the elevated numbers of closed plugins.
