I would like to change it to use the new URLs, add a few links to common issues, and a small clarification of your username/password

@Ipstenu

As someone that just submitted a first plugin to the repo, the more complete email confirmation would have helped.

It's everything @Ipstenu recommended with a few tweaks made in the (currently unused) version coded in the new directory:

  • "Congratulations" at the opening.
  • Putting the SVN link after the verbiage about access and username to use (rather than in the middle).
  • The signature and link to make/plugins at the end.

Additionally it uses "WordPress Plugin Directory" (non-plural).

I'll ensure the new and old templates are synced when updated.

Can we change "If you have issues" to "If you have issues or questions" -- I have a hope it will get people to ask "How do I close..." ;)

If we're finalized on the wording of the email, then it's a pretty simple change to the code to use it for the current directory.

@ipstenu Final version of the email?
