 `=== MY PLUGIN NAME ===`.

 parsing correctly for me.

 I tried the one I was working on, which didn't work.  But I also tried the
 sample readme provided at https://wordpress.org/plugins/readme.txt.

 I'll try to attach a photo.

 I sounds like it's expecting === MY PLUGIN NAME ===, but in the sample
 readme it's === PLUGIN NAME ===.
