Comment (by annezazu):

 This looks a ton better already! Thanks for digging right in. Much easier
 to understand what actions need to be taken. Some additional feedback...

 - In this screenshot https://cloudup.com/iSeHAh8aemA The language of "Your
 plugin has passed the first step towards being included in the block
 directory" is a bit confusing as my brain immediately goes to "What's the
 next step?". Without the UI having corresponding "step" related direction,
 it can feel like one's missing something. I might change this to something
 like "Your plugin has passed the checker tests and is ready to be included
 in the block directory."
 - In this screenshot https://cloudup.com/iXgZw_lNR12 I might change the
 language from "They need to be addressed before your plugin will work in
 the Block Directory" to "They need to be addressed in order for your
 plugin to be included in the Block Directory" to make it clearer that the
 plugin cannot be added since the checker is meant to be part of the flow
 for adding to the directory.
 - The language around recommendations can be a bit clearer. Perhaps "These
 are suggestions to improve your block. While they are not required for
 your block plugin to be added to the Block Directory, addressing them will
 help people discover and use your block."

 >Do you have any suggestions? I thought about having all these details
 default to open, but I don't know if that would be too much information.

 I think what might help is that if each warning has more information so
 there is consistency in  every warning having the arrow in front of it.
 That weirdly makes it easier to distinguish and creates a nice visual
 pattern. Agreed on default to open being too much.
