Make Easter Egg GPL Compliant
|Reported by:||filosofo||Owned by:||filosofo|
The easter egg is funny; it has soul; I'm not complaining about it per se.
However, to be compliant with the GPL 2, we must distribute the WordPress "source code," which is
the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it.
It should be obvious that obfuscated code is not "the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it," and in fact the FSF says explicitly
Obfuscated “source code” is not real source code and does not count as source code."
The attached patch provides an un-obfuscated version of the easter egg code, to bring the code into compliance with the GPL.
