Questions

  1. I'm thinking of forking WordPress and calling it “Drewpal” – it will be exactly the same as WordPress but have a different logo and name. How can I be sure it succeeds
  2. What are your feelings on the REST API being rolled into core?
  3. Is there a way for a link to the file to be posted automatically to the page the upload was initiated from?
