  • Who takes care of QA both for the WordPress CMS and its Plugins
    Release 3.7.1 came out just a week from 3.7 because of shortcomings.
    Debugging a plugin produced a message related to a WP file.
    “Notice: get_theme_data is deprecated since version 3.4! Use wp_get_theme() instead. in /sites/…./…../wp-includes/functions.php on line 2919”
    Even though it’s just a warning I would say that these messages should be there. The CMS files should be checked and officially certified.

    You have a poor plugin or theme that is using old, deprecated, code.

    How do I find what is causing this message, because the nessage is only show the line number of the message function

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    To answer that: Everyone beta testing WP helps with QA, and everyone with commit access to core does too.

    No one ‘takes care’ of QA of plugins and themes save their authors.
