WordPress started big clean-up in plugins

Today, I got an e-mail from WordPress.org team.

You plugin has been temporarily closed, because it’s come to our attention that your plugin is inserting credit links by default. While it’s permissible to have a credit link to your personal site in your plugin, it must default to be turned off.
Review the restrictions listed on http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/about/
“The plugin must not embed external links on the public site (like a “powered by” link) without explicitly asking the user’s permission.”
Please also follow the WordPress coding standards by using full php tags instead of shorthand.
Please correct this and let us know if you have any questions.
You may have already been informed, but please also note that the Google Maps v2 API is going away soon, you should plan on upgrading to the current version as soon as you can.

Google Maps JavaScript v2 API To Be Removed


I really appreciated the message, because it is an example of normal communication. WordPress acts in a very civilized way, not as Google Play in the story with my Formula 1 app for Android closing.

I am going to fix the required aspects and release the plugin in the nearest time.
