As we tested all currently available wpmudev plugin in one test site we came along some problems and one of them popped up when we installed and checked ad-widget with defender.
It gave us a vulnerability warning because it was mixing up the name with the vulnerable wordpress-ad-widget and even suggested to update to another actual vulnerable version of that plugin.
To solve that problem we simply renamed the plugin folder from
A 5 minute change
But while we checked for that problem we realized that WPMUDEV seems to have no clue how useful a naming convention could be for developers and site maintainers.
Therefore I suggest that all WPMUDEV plugins will be stored in a wpmudev-plugin-name folder
They would appear as a wpmudev block in the plugins folder
They would be much better visible also in maintenance work
They would have a CI (Corporate Identity) and would promote WPMUDEV like a Daimler who stands for high quality (even sometimes they break down like any other car ;-()
many plugins already follow that naming scheme:
IMPORTANT use always hyphen and not the underscore and always write wpmudev and NOT wpmu-dev
lets start from the back
wpmudev-ad-widget <- ad-widget
wpmudev-maps <- wpmu_dev_maps_plugin
wpmudev-seo <- wpmu-dev-seo
wpmudev-post-votes <- wpmu-dev-post-votes
wpmudev-smush-pro <- wp-smush-pro
wpmudev-hummingbird <- wp-hummingbird
wpmudev-defender <- wp-defender
wpmudev-chat <- wordpress-chat
wpmudev-user-widget <- users-widget
wpmudev-user-sync <- user-sync
wpmudev-user-reports <- user-reports
wpmudev-user-activity <- user-activity
wpmudev-upfront-builder <- upfront-builder
If you like a shorter prefix for all wpmudev plugins use one which is unique and one which starts with w (as it gathers all plugins at the end (z would be even better)
It would take about one week to change all those plugin paths, probably even only a weekend - like a code sprint weekend where members could help to have afterward a much cleaner working surrounding!
