Comment (by Ipstenu):

 Scott, that is worded _really_ confusingly.

 I think you're saying that it's not easy to see ''where'' to go to add a

 So let's try this.

 1) Remove the 'Developer' link from the header and take the subheader from
 https://wordpress.org/themes/ and put in 'Add Your Plugin' (though perhaps
 'Submit Your Plugin'... @otto42 is that something too confusing for most
 users? I would think 'add' would get some derping...) - That would link
 DIRECTLY to the /add/ page, wherever it lives. Done and done.

 2)  If we add it to the sub header, we can remove it from the main header
 AND the sidebars on plugins! Win!

 3) Yes we need to edit https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-
 org/ :) It's the war between RTFM and 'Click here!' though.

 > We should probably also consider creating a new developers landing page
 that can have some introductory text and then link out from there to the
 plugin developer handbook for the various bits of documentation and also
 internally link to tools available on WordPress.org.

 That's what https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-org/ is
 '''supposed''' to be. Why do we want a landing page to link to another
 landing page? A link on the top of /add/ maybe to say "New to Plugins?"
 and "New to the .org repo?" with links to either the main handbook or the
 wp.org link?
