getting pending\future posts

Hey guys,
I have a lot of experience in develop for WordPress, but I am new at this
mailing list.

I am working on some plugin that calls future and pending posts.

There is nice core function that return the draft posts of the user:
get_users_drafts( $user_id ). But there is no other function for getting
the future state posts.

This function suppose to be very easy to write. Something like that:
http://pastebin.com/B1PYweRC
Also, maybe there is a need similar function for getting the pending posts
for the user. There was function with the same functionality:
"get_others_pending", but it is deprecated.

Since I never contributed to WordPress core. Should I add those two
functions (and the matching tests of course) to WordPress user.php ?

Sincerely yours,

Editor Link Behavior

Before I open a Trac ticket, I wanted to talk through a minor frustration I
have with the link tool to see if a) it's an issue others have and b) if
it's something worth changing.

When I'm writing a post, I often highlight text and want to use *that same
text* as the text for the link (which is used as alt text when the anchor
tag is rendered in markup). This is particularly relevant when I'm linking
to a book title, another article, or a person's name.

What I'd really like to see is the link text pre-populated with my
selection when the link modal opens.

Does this make sense to anyone else? Does it feel like a good idea? Should
I take some time to open a ticket and work on a patch?

auto_update_plugin trouble with self-hosted plugin

I'm having trouble configuring WP's auto updates to work with a plugin that
I have hosted on my own server. After troubleshooting within the plugin
without luck, I finally stripped everything out to a simple plugin that
ONLY tries to update itself, with no other functionality.

//
require_once 'classes/plugin-updates/plugin-update-checker.php';
$myPluginUpdateChecker = new PluginUpdateChecker_1_4(
    'http://example.com/myplugin.json',
    __FILE__,
    'myplugin'
);

add_filter( 'auto_update_plugin', '__return_true' );
//

The Plugins dashboard shows that an update is available for the plugin, and
clicking "Update Now" functions properly, but ideally I would like this
plugin to automatically update when WordPress goes to run its 12-hour cron
to update plugins.

By manually running the cron, I've proved that all wordpress.org-hosted
plugins *do* update automatically... so I guess my question is, what's
different? What do i need to DO differently in order to get my self-hosted
plugins to behave in the same fashion as plugins hosted in the official
repo?

In the end of this, I'd ideally like for ONLY my plugin to automatically
update (by using code similar to what's found here, only reversed logic...

New wpdb instance

Hi list,

I need to connect to a different database to retrieve some data. So I'm 
instantiating a new $wpdb object:

$new_wpdb = new wpdb( params );

It happens sometimes that I enter the wrong credentials, and if WP_DEBUG 
is true, this renders the WP admin totally inaccessible and I need to 
rename my plugin's folder to get it back:

https://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/src/wp-includes/wp-db.php#L581

How can I check that the credentials I have are legit without blowing up 
the admin?

Thanks,
Dino.

Suggestions on gathering feedback/buy-in for plugin ideas

I'm working on developing a plugin for a client site that I think may have some value to the WordPress
community. It's purpose would be to allow a site to connect to a RETS based MLS site and import real estate
listings and images into the site. I'm looking to garner feedback on the implementation and to determine
whether it would be of use to others.

Can anyone suggest methods that they've used to test the waters and determine if a plugin would be of use?

Possibly not the right place for this

Are there any known issues with WP 4 and Apache 2.4 and php 5.4?

I'm seeing some odd "behaviors" with a new installation where pages do not render correctly

(no subject)

Hello everyone! I just registered for the list. Does anyone have any advice for a newcomer in regard to
finding ways to contribute to the WordPress project? I thought about contributing to the codex but
thought my programming skills might be better utilized elsewhere.
Kindly,
