#3675: Readme validator for plugins appears to be broken

 I tried using the readme validator located at
 https://wordpress.org/plugins/developers/readme-validator/ to test the
 readme of a new plugin.

 Despite it looking fine to me, I kept getting an error:

 ''Fatal Errors:
 No plugin name detected. Plugin names look like: === Plugin Name ===''

 After making a few changes, I decided to try the sample readme provided at
 https://wordpress.org/plugins/readme.txt by cutting and pasting it into
 the same validator - the error was the same.

 I tried using the URL for the sample readme as well, and it produced the
 same error.  So it seems like something may be broken in the validator.
