Possible bug in plugins section of wordpress.org
This is probably not the best place for this, but I don’t know where else to post it.

Stable tagin version 0.7’s readme.txt was changed to
I thought that maybe wordpress.org was reading from the 0.5 tag’s readme.txt instead of the one in trunk. I decided to delete the 0.5 tag all together just to see what would happen. After the 0.5 tag was removed, wordpress.org started reading from 0.7’s readme.txt!
I was able to fix this myself but thought that I would let you know what happened.
