Comment (by Ipstenu):

 I'm talking about the slug, Obenland.  The confusion is because we use
 'plugin name' in the current form.

 Today: People type in a name and it's converted to a post name that cannot
 be changed. This is called your 'Plugin Name' in the submission form

 The proposed form: The postname is extracted from the Plugin Name.

 The PROBLEM: If a plugin is approved right away, we cannot change the

 Ergo: People cannot request a specific slug and will get a URL they don't

 That breaks SVN. And we cannot accept certain slugs (like google-
 analytics-by-bob is not okay). If we can edit the post-name after
 submission but before approval, that helps some things (like Google etc)
 but not the current problem of "Oh I didn't want the url /boaty-
 mcboatface/!" Which I'm hoping we can resolve :)
