  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 5.4

Some prerequisites, per comment:25:ticket:48515:

  • Resolve #meta4621, so that all three headers (Requires at least, Tested up to, Requires PHP) could be defined in the same place.
  • Publish posts on make/plugins and make/themes with an announcement for plugin and theme authors to move these headers to the main plugin file or the style.css file, and remove them from readme.txt.
