    To the people tasked with reviewing plugins in the repository,

    I have had the wp-categories-widget installed on a whole bunch of sites for a very long time…

    The plugin authors were very quick to update the plugin when it was discovered it had a vulnerability, as reported by Wordfence… The update has been there in the repository, uploaded and ready, for over two weeks…

    And yet it continues to be “temporarily” closed “pending a full review”… And therefore I am unable to download and update the plugin on all of my sites, and so remove that vulnerability…

    Instead, I must continue to dread being forced by your inattention to tediously replace its functionality on more sites than I even want to think about…

    PLEASE review this plugin, and make its necessary update available to all of us who are using it, as soon as possible, please…

    John Fridinger

    Reviewing the updated/fix version takes time, and the plugins team has a significant backlog. Adding to that, WordCamp US took place last week, so it is understandable that this is taking a little bit of time.

    I have brought this to the attention of the plugins team but, for reference, you can reach out to them directly via plugins@wordpress.org

    @mrfoxtalbot, the system did not notify me of your reply, though the box for that was checked, and so am just seeing… Thank you for your response, and the email address… I will try to nudge them again… 🙏🌻
