 These seem like the same thing to me. I think we can close as a duplicate
 of #2538 for those, as it looks like that's the direction that ticket is
 going in.

 format is closed properly.

 We've since added extra validation for specific sections of the readme,
 for example, the Contributors field.
 If there's any other sections that need extra validation, specific tickets
 about specific fields would be preferred.

 > 3) Give feedbacks like Plugin Name is too wrong, or must have at least
 one screenshot.
 Long Plugin Names aren't a problem, if a developer really wants to use a
 silly long name.. why not?
 Screenshots aren't required, but the field can also be skipped from the
 readme - it's just the caption which is optional.

 The fields and sections are documented in the sample readme, I would
 expect most people to base it off that so I'm not sure we should set off
 alarms just because they've skipped an entirely optional thing.
