If you are a premium theme developer or have an interest in WordPress themes, you may have heard that over 200 themes were removed from the WordPress.org theme repository. The reasons behind the removals have yet to be made public and there is more afoot than just the removal of themes. Over the course of the past few days, debates and discussions have been taking place on numerous blogs regarding WordPress, the GPL, themes and much more. Matt has agreed to appear on WordPress Weekly on Thursday at 1 P.M. EST to set the record straight so to speak. My goal for this special episode of the show is to get an explanation as to what happened with the theme repository, the new guidelines, Matt’s stance on the GPL, the entire issue of premium themes, what will happen with plugins and a whole lot more. This episode is really important to me as I try to clear up as much of the muddy waters as I can.
