The @package should not be "WordPress" for a theme or a plugin.
Instead, it should be the name of the theme or plugin. Or, if the
plugin is sufficiently complex, it may have more than one package. But
regardless, it shouldn't be "WordPress".

Not enough to fail on though. Just tell them to change it for the next release.
