A fun coding challenge
Review an intentionally vulnerable plugin. Imagine that another plugin author has asked you to look at a plugin that is currently in development to check for security flaws and help them fix any that are present. Would you know what to look for and how to fix the problems?

any thoughts on using the WP_Filesystem API to transfer files to remote server?
I looked into it yesterday, but it doesn't seem to implement functions specifically for transferring files to remote servers. There are methods like put_contents that expect to open files and write contents. but no 'put_file' methods

once you are authenticated, you can perform any task the user could, provided the method is implemented. You can chmod, chown, move,copy, get the dir listing and stuff like that.
The advantage of using WP_Filesystem is that it has wrappers for most basic commands, adapted to the different conneciton methods (FTP,SFTP,FTPS).
There's also a direct method, but that's only useful in a local context, not remote.
If you have any suggestions as to checks to perform, I'm all ears :)

I"m launching this community for the Spine theme.
Spine is a free WordPress theme available from the official WordPress theme repository.
It can easily be customized through a live preview customizer screen, where you can pick new colors, add a background, add your logo, and more.
Under the hood, it rocks the Hybrid Core engine and Zurb Foundation for the front end.
Spine has already been downloaded over 3000 times in just over a week and has two 5 star ratings. If you like the theme, please rate it and leave a review. It goes along way and it's a way to show your support. So thanks :)

You can see a demo here: http:/spine.paulwp.com

For support, the best place is the forums, basically because there's a team of volunteers there helping out.
http://wordpress.org/support/theme/spine

I keep track of feature suggestions and bugs here
https://github.com/pdewouters/spine-theme/issues?state=open

Feel free to ask any questions here too!
