I'm a Seattle-based web developer working on the Dot Org team at Automattic.

I've released a few plugins into the repository and also have some some small WP-related projects on Github.

comment Is moving wp-config outside the web root really beneficial?
I don't do that for 99% of the questions I've asked, but I thought it was appropriate in this specific case. There are 8 answers to the question, some of which are fairly lengthly/complex, and some of which have a lot of upvotes despite despite containing inaccurate info or not adding anything to the conversation. I think offering a semi-authoritative conclusion is helpful to people reading the thread for the first time. As always, readers are free to make up their own mind; I'm just offering my opinion as the OP.

Stephen wrote more about the need for nonce in metaboxes at wp.tutsplus.com/tutorials/creative-coding/…. Scroll down to the "Using more than one nonce" section.

It'd be easier to just lookup the docs -- php.net/manual/en/features.file-upload.post-method.php

comment Automatically determine minimum WordPress version required for a plugin?
That's pretty cool, thanks :) I think it'd be a lot more convenient if it were a WordPress plugin itself, rather than a web service, but it's better than nothing.
