Message:

Plugin Directory: Search: Weight the english plugin title higher for localised searches.

Most locales don't translate the WordPress.org readme.txt name field, and most don't alter the title at all.

When a locale doesn't translate this field (even as a 1:1 match) this results in plugins often being unable to be found by title.

This changes the weighting for the english search title from 0.00001 to 0.5 which results in the localised title being preferred, but should result in english matches still ranking in the results.

See https://wordpress.org/support/topic/what-happened-to-the-plugin-search-system/
See #6106, #7617.
