June 11th, 2018

    So is this basically a drop-in patch/mod onto the WordPress mainline release tree?

      Well, it's a genesis, implying exactly what you think it does, rather than a drop-in. 2.7. Here's some links to get you started: 1, 2, 3. You've come quite late to the (erstwhile dead) party, but enjoy your trip down the rabbithole nevertheless.
