@ipstenu: Can you tell me what the disabled message on the front-end currently says? I don't think I have a plugin in that status currently.

The comment is especially worth noting as it outlines what the front-end banner message says based on whether it is being viewed by an admin, plugin committer, or anyone else.

Thinking about it a little bit more, I don't think we need to show anything on the front-end that is not a published plugin. wp-admin is where plugin authors will administrate their plugins in the future. There they can already see all their plugins in their various statuses. So we should probably just display those messages there, depending on the current status of the plugin.

If we redirect them to the backend and show the message there, that would work.

It would be the same experience for non-devs (plugin vanished) and eventually be awesome when we can leave comments for the devs on that page :)

In 3095:

Plugin Directory: Show banners to provide a clearer status for plugins.

Redirects users who can edit a particular plugin that is closed or disabled
from the front-end to the edit page of that plugin and adds admin notices to
give more context about the current status of a plugin.

Fixes #1689.
