Well, I’m glad that (last) week is behind us.
Or is it? Seems the most movement we’ve seen publicly from RepoGate is WordPress.com now showing a download and listing link for the “cloned” plugin listing. I’d say that’s a technical win for plugin authors who aren’t so happy WordPress.com is showcasing their code for an upsell to a paid hosting plan.
Still no morale win, for the rest of us, however.
“The thing that makes me uncomfortable is that my plugin is being used to help sell someone else’s business.” Luke Carbis says on a recent episode of Crossword. Carbis pontificates on having a robots.txt type of solution that allows plugin authors to disallow WordPress.com from listing their plugin.
This week on the WP Minute+, I had a chance to uncover exactly what a product manager does at Bluehost. Jocelyn Hendrickson joined me to share how she helps the e-commerce experience for customers, specifically in the WonderSuite & WonderCart products.
Bluehost is a Pillar Sponsor of the WP Minute. We thank them for the generosity, and hope your brand might also become a sponsor too!
