 Replying to [comment:18 boemedia]:
 > We discussed this ticket in design triage today. Since there have been
 multiple tickets opened on this topic, we acknowledge there's a need for
 this. However, we understand the problem @nacin mentions in #25437:
 > ''"The problem here is we would need to link an individual WordPress
 user (and potentially the same person using multiple user accounts across
 multiple installs) against a single WordPress.org user (as in, users on
 the actual website)."''
 > Therefore, we can't really see a way of moving this away from the actual
 plugins-page on WordPress.org.

 I'd missed this comment, sorry for the late reply.

 I agree that @nacin identified a challenge in completing this in #25437
 (the need to link to .org profiles), however is there a trac ticket for
 that specific portion (something global) of this ticket?  Total side rant,
 but Trac still doesn't seem to have dependencies built into it to clearly
 indicated when "X is blocked by Y").

 It would seem that UX feedback "logging in to .org" from the wp-admin is a
 good place to start. If a user wants to rate/review a plugin from the
 dashboard how should that be presented to them so it's clear what's
 happening.  We obviously already have massive user confusion of users
 logging into their site vs. .com.  Now they're going to have "3
 wordpresses to log into", how that flows is going to be extremely
