No patch, looks like an enhancement.

  • Type changed from enhancement to defect

Color sucks too -> Change it from red to something that doesn't look bad. Like Green.

We have to do something with it in 2.7 cause right now it sucks. I'd prefer to remove it, but some people want to keep the useless thing.

Some people... like your boss? :)

I want it removed too. The purpose is to demonstrate how to make a WP plugin and while it provides a functional example of a WP plugin, a more involved plugin would be useful. One that adds, for example, a management page, uses a hook or two (including one that takes more than two arguments, for instance) and one that is built in an object oriented way to demonstrate preferred coding techniques for a WP plugin.

I'm just saying that Hello Dolly, while a little useful from a demonstration perspective, really could use more demonstration functionality. Rewrite Hello Dolly in a more complex way, and it would still be functionally useless but demonstrably more useful. :)

My understanding was that Hello Dolly is supposed to be used as an example plugin, But like technosailor says, Its an utter aweful example of a plugin, Global values, running code in non-function/hook aspect, etc. It really would be good to replace it with something else which DOES demonstrate a lot more functionality..
