Are your WordPress plugins GPL compatible?

A little over two months ago I spoke at WordCamp US on the topic of “[u]sing a GitHub Action to ensure your plugins are GPL compatible.” The primary concern was ensuring that WordPress plugins focus on more than just first-party code being properly licensed and expanding that to ensure that all third-party libraries (aka dependencies) are also properly licensed. So that folks don’t need to continually check for that in every pull request, using a GitHub Action to help automate the process can give immediate comfort that this is no longer a concern for plugin developers.

Last week I met with Doc Pop on the Press This podcast to talk a bit more on the topic to give folks additional context beyond my WCUS lightning talk. You can listen via the Press This RedCircle episode page or via the Spotify embed below (the only service that embeds nicely).
