Jane Wells posted an entry on the WordPress Blog about canonical plugins.

That would be plugins which are recognized as the standard plugins for some of the most-requested functionality in WordPress.

  • community-developed (by more than one person)
  • GPL
  • verified and secure
  • tested against new versions of WordPress
  • live on the WordPress repository

I particularly like the fact that canonical plugins would be tested against new versions of WordPress. It would be nice to not have to worry about your most important plugins not working after a WordPress upgrade.

Since canonical is word that few normal people use, there blog is running a poll for the best alternative name:

  • Standard
  • Core
  • Premium
  • Validated
  • Official
  • Canonical

Also commenting on canonical plugins are Blogging Pro and wplover .
