Description

We'd like to request the addition of linode- to the list of trademarked terms that cannot be used as prefixes for plugin slugs in the WordPress plugin repository.

As I understand it, that list is maintained here:
https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/browser/sites/trunk/wordpress.org/public_html/wp-content/plugins/plugin-directory/shortcodes/class-upload-handler.php#L438

I'm not sure if there are any requirements for which companies/trademarks get added to that list. Let me know if you need further information.

We appreciate your consideration. Thanks!

Can you please email plugins@wordpress.org to discuss this?

If it's determined this is the best course of action, we will reopen this ticket, but in general, we're only doing this IF things are being abused, or we have reason to believe they will be.

The proper method would be to talk to us first :)

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
