Wordpress Quickstart should be updated to latest stable release
Last modified: 2015-05-14 22:24:18 EDT
Description of problem:
The wordpress quickstart is currently using version 3.4.2, current stable release is 3.5.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install wordpress from quickstart
2. See prompt to upgrade
Upgrade is needed after installing from quickstart
Upgrade should not be needed
3.5.2 was a security and maintenance release, without upgrading, some users will be running vulnerable versions of wordpress after an initial install.
Additionally, a ways back I thought a mechanism had been put in place to always pull the latest stable version from upstream. This clearly is not happening as the latest stable version is 3.6
Fixed in https://github.com/openshift/wordpress-example/pull/37
QE, to test, please run
rhc create-app <name> php-5 mysql-5 --from-code=git://github.com/smarterclayton/wordpress-example.git#wordpress36
Once it's validated I will merge this request into master and update the quickstart link.
Tested on devenv_3762, the wordpress application can work correctly, so verify this bug, thanks.
The version of the wordpress is 3.6 now.
Can you explain how this works?
It looks like we are still maintaining our own repo of the upstream code in github.
I thought the solution described to me was that "at each install we were going to automatically pull the latest stable version from upstream?"
That's Drupal. Eventually it'd be nice to do this for wordpress - but it's a story. It's still a manual process.
I'd be willing to volunteer to try and help maintain the WordPress quickstart so it stays current, if someone could give me some pointers.
I use the term "maintain" extremely loosely (I'm not a PHP coder)-- I'd watch for stable version of WordPress to change and then drop in latest version as a pull request. To do that I'd probably need a few minutes on the phone w/ someone to understand file layout and basic git commands to do the right thing.
Let me know.
That's fine - the process is usually straight forward (although it could be more so)
FWIW, 3.6.1 came out last week.
