Currently, the plugins and themes can only have one author attached to it. When a plugin/theme has multiple people working on it, only one can be specified.

In my case, I would like to improve upon an existing plugin built into the core of Bludit (the "latest posts" plugin). If I make changes to it, the author is still specified as "Bludit", even though a portion of the code was actually written by myself.

My request is that a plugin or theme can also have contributors attached to the metadata, as well as the original author. Below is an example of what the metadata.json could look like if implemented:

Code: Select all

{
	"author": "Author's Name",
	"email": "email@address.com",
	"website": "http://example.com",
	"version": "1.0",
	"releaseDate": "2016-09-03",
	"license": "MIT",
	"compatible": "1.4,1.5beta",
	"notes": "",
	"contributors": [
		{
			"author": "Someone else",
			"email": "another@emailaddress.com"
		},
		{
			"author": "The Last Person",
			"email": "me@mywebsite.com"
		}
	]
}
Thanks,
