Comment (by bridgetwillard):

 Hi. Bridget from the Marketing team here.

 Kevin brings up a valid point. The whole Brand of WordPress is elevated
 not just by the quality of the code of Core, nor by the quality of code of
 plugins, but also by the perception of them by the users. This includes
 developers, tinkerers, and even agencies.

 If the goal of WordPress is to gain all of the audience base from beginner
 to enterprise, we should make the plugin directory as user-friendly yet
 professional as possible.

 The more robust plugin shops (I do work for GiveWP.com as a disclaimer)
 provide useful marketing tools as well as videos. These deserve as much as
 a place in a tab on the directory as screenshots -- if not more.

 It's been said that WordPress doesn't have an acquisition problem, it has
 a retention problem. We -- as a community of volunteers and business
 experts -- should do all we can do elevate the Brand individually, as
 plugin and theme developers, and as a whole.
