I just updated to 2.6.2 and wiped out sidebar.php with my "Author" information.
Not the hardest thing in the world to fix, but annoying.
Does anybody else think that hard-coding personalized information into theme programme files is craziness, or is it just me? Am I the only one who thinks this personalization should be, ideally, stored in the database or - if this is deemed to erode a desirable level of segmentation - stored in a data text file (like wp-config) in the theme directory?
We're not talking about a theme prepared as a high-school computer science project here, we're talking about the official WordPress default theme!
