1. Considering I had proposed a patch that would have hidden the UI and functionality for new installs (keeping it available specifically for anyone already using the feature) I think this just needs some serious discussion in a dev chat. We have an approach for deprecating the existing feature, and a quality plugin to serve as a replacement moving forward. That this hasn’t happened in core is more a problem with focus and prioritization than it is with nonexistent code.

    This will be the first time a feature is removed from core and substituted by a plugin.

    Wasn’t blogroll the first?

      1. Well… I remember when (manual) geolocation of posts was removed to be substituded by the “geo” plugin… could it be around versions 1.x or 2.x … Yes, I was there… ;-)
