 Sorry! It was my understanding that the plugins listed for beta testing
 was controlled on the WP.org API side, not the plugin moderation side.

 While I am a member of the Core team and I think the request is
 reasonable, I was also hoping to discuss the request publicly and allow
 other team members and contributors to share what they feel should be
 listed here. If others feel strongly that never-merged feature plugins
 should remain (sorted to the bottom), I wouldn't object.

 My goal with this ticket was not to close any of the plugins out on behalf
 of the owners, only to unlist them from the beta testing page. This will
 hopefully better direct contributor attention to the plugins that:

 a) align with the project's current priorities
 b) reflect where the core team is actively investing their time and
 c) are realistically going to be considered as a part of Core in the

 > Last time this came up, it was pointed out that some should remain as
 they were being used to iterate on further ideas post-merge. But a quick
 glance seem to say no, they're not.

 I'd say some of the plugins have continued to iterate (Gutenberg, Auto-
 updates), but the older ones definitely have not, and some have even
 updated their GitHub repos or readme files to indicate the plugin is no
 longer needed (Application Passwords, Better Code Editing).
