Plugin Release Category

Continuing the discussion from Classic Commerce 1.0.0-alpha.3 release:

What is everyone’s thoughts on having a dedicated “Plugin Release” category, where only users in the plugin developers group can post?

I have been on the fence on this for a while, so would love some feedback.


Specifically pinging @plugin-developers and @theme-developers for their feedback as we would likely want to see something similar up for themes.

That would mean that only Tim would be able to announce the plugin releases for Classic Commerce. Up to now I have been doing this but I’m not in the plugin developers group.


That is fair - would you want to join the plugin developers group, but still have “Website Developer” title set as the primary group?

Yes, that’s an OK solution.


I was about asking for this :laughing: so for me is fine!


I think a plugin release or plugin news category might be helpful (and theme equivalent if required). At present, such announcements are made in the #plugins:plugin-support category along with a tag such as #classic-commerce but it would make sense to keep the support category free for support issues. We still need to use appropriate tags though.


I have set this up, I tried to move the threads I could find that were announcing releases but please let me know if I missed any.

I also set up a similar thing for themes, when I have a bit more time I will move the theme release threads to that new category too.
