Include Summer of Code's Podcasting Support With WordPress
|Reported by:||cavemonkey50||Owned by:||anonymous|
Based on the recommendation of few people, I am proposing my Summer of Code project be included with WordPress. For those of you unfamiliar with my project, I recently wrote a concluding write up on my site. The actual source code can be viewed at the Summer of Code repository.
I feel podcasting is an addition worth distributing with WordPress due to the sheer number of WordPress podcasters. From my research during the summer, WordPress appears to be second in podcast blogging software next to Drupal. Having only basic enclosure support and no iTunes support currently is a major downside to running a podcast with WordPress. If WordPress would have some enhanced support for podcasts, it could easily become the go to choice for podcasters.
If you looked over my work this summer, my number one goal with my project was to fit in with WordPress. My project takes advantage of WordPress 2.3's new taxonomy system, thus requiring no extra database overhead. In addition to that, I designed the interface to fit in with current UI and be as minimalist as possible. Therefore, I feel my project could easily be distributed with WordPress.
I understand this is a major suggestion, so I'm looking for feedback from everyone. Do you feel better podcasting support should be included with WordPress? If so, how should it be distributed?
Personally, I feel this should be distributed as a plugin with WordPress since not everyone will take advantage of it. I know Matt mentioned at one point over the summer he would like to see this included in core. What do you think?
