Comment (by tellyworth):

 I attached a new patch that takes a totally different approach.

 Basically it requests info about all plugins when using the update-check
 API. This is not yet supported by the API, but if consensus is positive
 then I have an API-side patch to handle it. The extra info is returned as
 a separate list - one list of plugins needing an update, one for
 everything else.

 This gives WP a canonical slug for all plugins that exist in the wp.org
 directory. Given that it's a simple matter of using the existing plugin
 details modal.

 I don't think this necessarily replaces the other ideas mentioned in this
 thread - it might make sense to do it this way for plugins hosted in the
 directory, and use readme data for those sourced elsewhere. Either way I
 think it'd be helpful to request and store this data, as having the
 canonical slug for installed plugins (where applicable) will be useful for
 other things. This might help satisfy #20002.
