    How can I remove one of my plugins from the WordPress repository? I am taking two of my different login plugins and merging them into one, so I want to remove the inactive one. How can I do this?

    Delete all the files in the repository seems like the obvious way. Or all the files in the trunk, at least.

    delete all files, and then remember to do a commit.

    Wow. I can't believe there is no way to remove a plugin that I authored.

    Anyone ever get an answer how to delete a plugin? I'm getting some very rude comments because I didn't release a version yet. Part of the problem is WordPress automatically listed my plugin (which wasn't tagged) and I'm now getting nasty comments.

    I really need to delete an old plugin. It's causing confusion with the new plugin name!

    I have already sent wordpress a bug report (though I know this is not a bug) about my request for deletion or for any information on how to delete one...
    I have desperately done that because there is no option to delete a plugin from their repository. But still, there is no response whatsoever on my request to delete the test plugin I have created.

    I too need to remove a plugin and re release it as GNU/GPL according to their rules but I simply can't get a moderator to even moderate the posts.

    Anybody else ever get an answer?

    So, it turns out you can email your request to plugins@wordpress.org and they should remove your plugin from wordpress.org, but not from the actual SVN repository.
