#5568 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Plugin Directory: Do not display author names if there are no committers

Reported by: ipstenu's profile Ipstenu Owned by: dd32's profile dd32
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords: has-patch needs-testing


There are a few reasons why there would be no committers to a plugin, but the primary are:

  • Authors are banned (if so, we do not wish to give them free advertising)
  • Author has request a GDPR removal (if so, we should make sure we don't accidentally display information they wish removed)

This is not a perfect fix, nor does it address all concerns, but it is a start.

Authors are banned
Author has request a GDPR removal

Under what scenario's do plugins stay open in those cases?

#2 @Ipstenu

Never. Or at least I can't think of any, but the name still shows up on a closed plugin. It's fine to have them on most closed plugins (esp. 'By Author Req'), or any time a temp-closure happens (security related, or for people who ignore email warnings and need a more stern poke).
