i recently added my plugin ipeRSS (information and download page located at <https://iperss.0x7be.de>) to the WordPress Plugin Directory by using the form at <http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/add/>.
Besides the input got not parset correctly (URLs are missing), i wrote a description to be read by an already authorized developer for informing themselves about the plugin before approving me.
As i just noticed, the plugin description was not used to only be shown as information for developers, but got used to be shown as information for public (see <http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/iperss/>).
Two quesions about this:
1. Will this description be replaced as soon as i uploaded
the plugin containing a readme file?
2. If not: is it possible to change the description?
A little suggestion: you should stat CLEARLY that the description will be used for showing it to public, and not only to approving developers.
PS.: I’m writing this blog post because i did not get eny feedback via mail since about 2 days. Maybe one of you here at the foroms can help me with this.
