Prepare bp-multiple-forum-post for release
It looks like most of the work is done: https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/bp-multiple-forum-post
I'm going to go through and clear out some of the outstanding issues, and then let's get this moving, so it can be put into Commons In A Box.
Potentially worth exploring before release: #5268

Okay I think we're ready to go. I just did a review of the code and a last test it seems right to me: https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/bp-multiple-forum-post

Thanks, Dan! Here's a list of next steps, as I see them:
1. Add r-a-y and cuny-academic-commons to the list of contributors in readme.txt, and make sure that your username is first, since you did most of the work :)
2. Create an account on wordpress.org. It doesn't look like rjbaniel exists there - if you already have one under a different name, be sure to change readme.txt so that your contributor name is the same as your wordpress.org name.
3. Once you have your account, go to https://wordpress.org/plugins/add/ and follow the steps to request space in the respository.
4. Wait to get the email that your plugin has been approved. (Let me know if this takes more than two or three days.)
5. Check out the svn repo (svn co https://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/bp-multiple-forum-post)
6. Create a screenshot or two, put in /assets, and reference in your readme.txt as described in https://make.wordpress.org/plugins/2012/09/13/last-december-we-added-header-images-to-the/
7. Create the first tag. I think it makes sense to change it to 1.0 (which will require making the change in the plugin files too). Create a GitHub release/tag at the same time.
Adding Ray as a watcher in case there's anything I've forgotten.

Hi Dan - I just looked, and it appears that the request was approved. Maybe the email got sent to spam? Anyway, you should be ready to go.
A brief guide to publishing to wordpress.org svn is at https://redmine.gc.cuny.edu/issues/5490#note-46 (points a through i). You want to give it a go, and let me know if you hit problems?
