 We don't even know what pages people are on when they click those links
 (at a guess, they don't, given the number of people who have replied "What

 WordPress.org Developer Tools?  How to submit your plugin and not make me

 I think https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-org/ is the
 right page for that information, but I'm not sure how to word it properly
 for all things :/


 >  The handbook only mentions the readme.txt example buried on this page
 (there is also a broken or incomplete reference to it on the landing


 It's also on https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-org
