My plugin vanished from wordpress.org (3 posts)

    So I had a WordPress plugin hosted at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/affiliate-easel-for-amazon/ with a small but loyal following and today I got an email from someone looking for it. I went to find it myself and it wasn't there anymore. (The URL redirects to the plugin directory home.)

    I haven't logged to wordpress.org in months so I was surprised to learn of the password reset, but once I got in I can see my plugin... but just when I'm logged in. It doesn't turn up in search or when I past the same URL when not logged in.

    Obviously the plugin is still there, it's just hidden for some reason.

    I tried making a minor change an uploading a new version. Nothing seemed to change.

    Anyone have any idea how to contact WP to find out what's up? Or any other ideas?

    I'd probably just post here and explain the situation:

    It reappeared today, and I got a message asking me about it from wordpress.org. Nothing mentioned about it being removed or violating any rules but apparently, it was being reviewed. I asked in my reply what's going on.
