[wp-hackers] Wordpress minor versions changing things for no reason, why?

See, I thought about this. But there's still the fundamental problem
that I have no idea what bits of the code will still be here in six
months. I'm not going to invest 50+ hours careful crafting
documentation to help novice plugin authors, when the next version is
probably going to break it all again. That's half the problem with the
codex... even what *is* there is mostly outdated! The fact that the
core devs don't take documentation, consistency, and unit-testing
seriously is a significant point in the argument about whether
Wordpress is a business-ready platform or just a toy.

Anyhow, I'm not really interesting in debating a lot of stuff or
flaming back and forth; I just wanted to share my impressions as a
developer interacting with the Wordpress codebase and community.
Thanks for your time.
