The Workflow team confirmed this on Twitter:
We do make some edits for compatibility and best practices, but we're happy to change things back if you'd like!— Workflow (@WorkflowHQ) March 21, 2017
This has been on my mind for a while, and my feelings are still conflicted:
- They didn’t tell me that they made changes, but the workflow is still attributed to me when you access it. This feels like a misrepresentation of my work.
- They actually improved the workflow slightly, and I’ve benefited from these improvements.
While I’m glad they improved it, I think they should have given me the right of refusal regarding accepting their changes, or at a minimum notified me that they were making changes. In this case, I would have accepted them, but I’m not sure that I always would.
