    Found an upgrade in my dashboard, but when I pointed to http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/backwpup it returned to http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ . Seems plugined deleted?

    I still haven't updated to the latest. I don't know if this situation has any related with this.

    Great to read that Daniel. I hope your plugin is back soon. It's the best tool for backup I've ever seen. I hope you keep improving it in the future. If you keep doing that great job with it, soon it will be the number 1!!

    I also have one idea suggestion that came to my mind today: Is possible to add Google Docs as a cloud file storage? Now I use Dropbox with your plugin, but I have a very limited space with it (2GB). But I'm paying 5$ a year for 20GB for Google services (Picasa and Gmail and Docs), and today I thought it would be great to use it for backups, and maybe it's less buggy than Dropbox... What do you think about it?

    Thank you and congratulations again for your great plugin!!

    I find it interesting that Worpress removes some plugins that are reported to cause trouble. Here it worked fine, while I had loads of trouble with other plugins. Would be interesting to hear what are the objective criteria why some are removed and others may stay.
    Also, I think that WordPress should not just make the pages of these plugins "non-existent". This is not a good way of dealing with problems. If there is a valid reason to remove a plugin, users should certainly know about it for that very same reason. WP could disable the download button and post an alert. Or they could even keep the links to the previous versions.

    I assume that one or two users blamed the plugin author at the WP.org staff and removed his plugin without going into detail.

    I had the plugin running on a lot of projects on different hosting platforms since version 1.3 or so and it JUST WORKS!

    I really cannot understand what the WP.org staff is doing here.

    Daniel does his best to deliver fixes, support and also developed a version 2.0 from the ground up currently beta testing.

    WP.org behaviour is not helpful for the whole community.

    It's not the first time WP.org fails in removing things so quickly and not seeing the whole picture.

    Just click the full download paths:

    Version 1.7.6:
    http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/backwpup.1.7.6.zip

    archive Version 1.7.5:
    http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/backwpup.1.7.5.zip

    hope this helps - dave :)

    Yeah, i agree with almarma. I hope your plugins back Dave !

    Downloaded the latest version now !

  13. Issues with plugins are sent to plugins@wordpress.org, where someone actually goes through the business of reviewing the plugin for issues. If a VALID issue is found (like a security hole etc), then the plugin is removed. The plugin review folks are understaffed, and I know it's taking longer than people would like :( They SHOULD be in contact with Daniel, and if not, he should email for an update.

    Firstly I love this plugin and have reviewed it myself (http://bit.ly/jJR1Og).

    Is it possible for WP Support to reveal what the supposed issues were?

    Have you got an official notification from someone on behalf of wp.org?

    Issues with plugins are sent to plugins@wordpress.org, where someone actually goes through the business of reviewing the plugin for issues. If a VALID issue is found (like a security hole etc), then the plugin is removed.

    Where is this documented? I haven't found any official page with this information.
