 > Agree with jb510 on this as well as his opinion shared on what he thinks
 the design should be. I really don't like the separation and without a
 decent description and title only, it's to confusing for the user.

 There was a mockup added in the #design chat
 https://wordpress.slack.com/files/U02QJMG7R/FHM6CFZ52/image.png that adds
 a green "installed" label next to the title.

 Rather than improving things, I think this highlights that the whole
 section has the potential to be confusing.  Doubling up on labeling to fix
 it (headline and label) exposes the original flaw.

 I want to make clear however, I think this proposal is an order of
 magnitude better than what the plugin review team allowed JetPack to do.
 I'd certainly support #3 over "the status quo", I just still think it's
 problematic and confusion to users using plugin search.

 In the interest of trying to continue to be constructive in this
 discussion here is an alternative mockup (better then the last, but which
 I hope someone could iterate on and make even better)
