    I'm looking for a RSS aggregator on wordpress recently. After comparing some projects, I think that wp-o-matic plugin is the best suit for me. However, i notice that the wp-o-matic has not update for a long time. I want to know whether I can revise it and republish as a new project.

    Regards.

    That would be nice. maybe you should contact the developer. Please do you know the tag or code for the template that will display the credit link under the post instead of to the feed url

    I was also looking into making some tiny enhancements, and I also looked into the source code.

    So, just for future reference: the source code explicitly says that the module is licensed under the GNU GPL (see http://www.fsf.org or google), that's an open source license which specifically grants anybody the right to make modifications to the source code, and even re-distribute it.

    So, it's perfectly acceptable and legal to make modifications to the plugin or possibly even branch/fork it if you deem it necessary.

    Personally, I would however suggest to get in touch with the developer (etruel)if you want to add new features - that'd surely be the best option to ensure that you're not stepping on anybody's feet (i.e. duplicate/redundant work).
