#4707: Unclear definition of required plugin headers
 Reporter:  casiepa           |      Owner:  (none)

 Priority:  normal            |  Milestone:
Component:  Plugin Directory  |   Keywords:
 According to the documentation on https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins
 /plugin-basics/header-requirements/#header-fields only the 'Plugin name'
 header is required.
 But the documentation of the parsing of the plugin at
 admin/includes/plugin.php seems to indicate that e.g. also version would
 be required: 'Version: Must be set in the plugin for WordPress 2.3+'

 Can the documentation be updated on what are the really required fields
 for the plugin header?
