As colour is used as color so changing the constant EBML_ID_COLOURSPACE is more relevant for the developers.

@rakibwordpress The file you are referring to is from an external dependency: GetID3, which is not maintained here.

Additionally, changing the name of this constant would be a breaking change, which, depending on the PHP version, could cause fatal errors if any code, be it a plugin, theme or even WP Core itself, would refer to that constant.

I'd recommend closing this ticket without action.

Hi there, welcome back to WordPress Trac!

As noted above, GetID3 is an external library and should not be patched here, any suggested changes to its files should be submitted upstream.

It's worth noting that while the spelling guidelines do indeed recommend American spelling, e.g. color instead of colour, these guidelines only apply to WordPress core and not to external libraries.
