#1072: Plugins Directory Search for incomplete names

 As a user, if I do a request to the plugins API looking for a plugin, but
 I don't include the full name of a plugin, but part of it, the API
 response doesn't include the plugin in the results

 Example: if you look for "jetpac", the response returns 0 plugins found:

 curl 'https://api.wordpress.org/plugins/info/1.1/?action=query_plugins' -H
 'content-type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' --data

 It would be much useful if you could search for a subtext, instead of
 whole words. And would make much easier for the users to find what they
 are looking for.
