Include link to plugin page at WordPress.org in plugin details

    I think there should be a link to the plugin page on WordPress.org (if the plugin is available from there) along with the plugin author's link.

    When I'm updating my WordPress version I always check through each of my installed plugins to make sure they are compatible with the new version, but currently I have to do this by searching manually.

    A link appears if the plugin has been updated, but plugins are not always updated regularly, so this does not help when updating the WordPress core.

    They used to have this, but some rocket scientists decided to change it. When I asked about it, I was told that it's up to the plugin developer to add the link to the plugin's description.

    It was changed because the plugin devs wanted to be able to pick their own. They didn't put in a fallback for... reasons I have forgotten.
