Comment (by DvanKooten):

 We're still getting reports from several people that they're being
 redirected to the Changelog plugin. Browsers seems to be caching the HTTP
 headers so when trying different browsers, you have to be in "luck" to run
 across it. Once you do, you'll get that same behavior for a short time.

 When using curl or wget there seems to be a 50% change of being
 redirected, even on consecutive runs.

 curl -v https://wordpress.org/plugins/mailchimp-for-wp/
 wget -S https://wordpress.org/plugins/mailchimp-for-wp/

 Unfortunately, I am far too unfamiliar with the WordPress.org code and/or
 architecture to dig into this myself (not even sure if I can). This has to
 be happening for other plugins too, right? Anything in our plugin's README
 that could be triggering it?
