Tips

A neat trick, is to put this single file admin-footer-version-rebranded.php (not its parent directory) in the /wp-content/mu-plugins/ directory (create it if not exists) so you wont even have to enable it, and will be loaded by default, also, since first step installation of WordPress setup!

Also, for translation functionality, put all files of the single languages (admin-footer-version-rebranded-en_US.mo for example) that you need (not its parent directory) in the /wp-content/mu-plugins/ directory (create it if not exists) and will be loaded by default, they also, since first step installation of WordPress setup!

Note that mu-plugins functionality is available since WP 2.8+ or greater and is not present in WP 2.7+ or previous.
