[Plugin: Sociable] This plugin should be abandoned

  • Sorry, but after all the churn during the past days (not counting the churn during previous updates), all I can recommend is to abandon this plugin.

    It’s out of control (as someone else wrote here). Even worse — the maintainer appears to not have any clue.

    – Several released versions of the plugin during the past days, many of them buggy, some of them completely broken (because they included all of the subversion root, i.e. /trunk, /tags, /branches)

    – completely chaotic release numbering — there was some 4.1.10 *after* 4.2.0, then came 4.2.1 (or similar)

    – not a single usable changelog entry — only “FIXED: some fixes”, even if there were massive changes (which sometimes broke blogs ore even rendered them completely fubar)

    – no a single svn commit message — all of them are empty

    – ridiculous allmost-whitespace-only changes, like 15 or so lines of code changed for real and 12.000 empty lines added (to includes/class-sociable-*)

    – changes which loose previous configuration after plugin updates.

    with all due respect, this plugin should die.

  • The 12,000+ blank lines is ridiculous! Plugin removed!

    Hi mkilian and blendium,

    Last week we´ve faced deployment problems with commit in SVN software, that´s why the ridiculous blank lines (BYW are being fixed today). Your feedback is much appreciated since we work very hard for you and your readers to enjoy a remarkable experience by sharing your relevant content and spreading the world.

    So, we really hope you can accept our apologize for this inconvenient and go on our partnership. We really do our best everyday for creating these kind of free tools, sharing and collaborating.

    Many thanks for your understanding,
