    Hmm…I wonder if Scott Bowler of ClassicPress will now choose to fork Woocommerce too as it becomes ever more dependent on WP v5, Gutenberg, React, etc.

      Nice idea. ClassicCommerce. We should make a spoof website for that. :p

      What prevents Scott Bowler or any “Scott Bowler” who wants to fork any project out there from choosing a specific version he or she wants to work on?

      Those who plan to fork a project have also the knowledge to extend it based on their needs, therefore they don’t need to rely on any other dependency.

      If you think ClassicPress is going to die, then let it be; by fighting it in such fierce way on so many levels proves you its vitality.

      Also, there’s no need to be sarcastic or poignant mate, just letting you know.

        Agreed. Although I think that, sadly, ClassicPress has little chance to take off, I find the constant digs from members of the WP community since it was announced very lame. This sect-like attitude is disgusting.

        True, anyone can fork any GPL project privately or publicly. Will it be as publicly profiled as WP this or next year? Probably not. Also wasn’t being sarcastic. I’m actually a fan of choice which ClassicPress may resemble more than WP itself these days (at least in spirit) even if it ultimately goes nowhere.

        However any fork soon becomes removed from the ecosystem of the original due to compatibility, etc and either gains enough momentum to create it’s own or dies off. Such things can become impractical to use but I actually hope it does well.

        It has a strong fanboy feeling to it – yes, most of my work life has to do with WordPress (hence “Focus on WordPress, E-Commerce and Usability”), but that doesnt mean I have to be a religious fanatic. Lots of stuff is done better with a different tool (eg. you do NOT need a whole WP install for a simple singular placeholder page; you just use a simple HTML page instead .. and so on).

        cu, w0lf.

    It would be nice if they don’t move fast and break stuff. There was a breaking change for variation images. That’s why they hurried up and released 3.5.1
