Update links on WordPress Foundation's Projects page

Description

Looks like some links on WordPress Foundation's Projects page could use an update:

  1. Should SVN links be replaced with Trac ones? It wouldn't make them less clear, but more user-friendly.
  2. Should bbPress Trac link be included, for consistency with BuddyPress?
  3. /extend can now be dropped from URLs.

A few more things:

  • They should be using HTTPS
  • Instead of linking to SVN or Trac, I think "WordPress" should just link to WordPress.org, and plugins should link to /extend/plugins. That's much more informative for the vast majority of visitors. If linking to the code was an attempt to encourage people to get involved, I think it'd be better to point them to make.wordpress.org instead.
  • WordCamps and meetups should probably be listed too, since the Foundation handles the money for most camps, and pays Meetup.com dues for all the officially recognized meetups.

+1 to all the above.

If some updated stats were warranted.... (Lots of stats to choose from if that way inclined)

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Since this ticket was filed, it looks like this has all been fixed: all links point to trac (not SVN); lines of code are updated (and removed for bbPress and BuddyPress); and WordCamps and meet-ups are added.

If you see new issues, please file new tickets.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
