Description

I'd like to update my plugin's slug to remove a copyright-protected word. I realise slugs aren't currently editable.

A plugin's slug currently serves as a unique identifier in a lot of places. Places like stats, updates, etc. It's currently just not possible to do that without breaking a lot of things I'm afraid.
