    I'm interested in adopting this plugin and getting it officially working again with 3.4. Eric or Tom, if you read this, how can we arrange that?

    It would be great if you were to do this. You could always take it, make it better, and give credit to the original authors when you post it - the license allows for it.

    I did fix it to make it work for me on WordPress 3.3.1. You can download the code from the GitHub repository I created for it:

    * https://github.com/randyhoyt/wp-category-meta

    What I'd love is to be able to make my code available at this location in the WordPress repository so that people could upgrade to it.

    Has anyone been able to track down the original author, Eric Le Bail? I wonder if there should be some defined way to fork or reassign plugins which are in danger of becoming "abandonware."

    I hate to thread-drift to a feature request, but where else would I ask:

    Would a new version have a find_terms_meta($key, $value) which would more-or-less do a "SELECT meta_id FROM $wptm_table_name WHERE meta_key = %s" (and optionally, "WHERE meta_value" matches $value if given), to permit finding all the categories (or other taxonomies) with a given key? Although come to think of it, that might need some sort of Join to permit searching only certain taxonomies... and it might have to handle the case of a single category having multiple values for a given key. Really it would need to work like get_users(). Hmm...

    In any case, that would be very handy for things like populating a drop-down box with all the categories to which we have assigned a certain meta tag.

    randy, please go for it mate. No use waiting for the original author so if you could adopt it, that would be great!

    Yes it would be great if this could be updated to work. It is exactly what I need.
