    initial v1  
    1 I agree that local avatar support should be considered for core. Gravatar’s been in wordpress for a long time, and likely has to stay in core for the sake of the sites already out thereg it… but open source blogging software should not depend on a particular cloud service for any of its core functionality.

    33Gravatar is so entwined in wordpress that the codex describes avatars as something inherently cloud-based (“[https://codex.wordpress.org/Settings_Discussion_Screen#Avatars an image that follows you from weblog to weblog]”). Integrating it into core w/ 2.5 was probably a mistake.
