Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

Background: Slack discussion.

There are a couple of "hidden" support forum views for plugin authors and contributors:

https://wordpress.org/support/view/plugin-committer/sergeybiryukov
https://wordpress.org/support/view/plugin-contributor/sergeybiryukov

AFAIK, they are not exposed anywhere in the UI at the moment.

Suggestions:

  • Add these links to the author view in the plugin directory (though at the moment it's not exposed anywhere either, see #2624).
  • Add some more views:
    • Only support topics (excluding reviews)
    • Only active topics
    • Only unresolved topics
    • Only reviews

Note that these links are not new, we've discussed them before:

https://make.wordpress.org/plugins/2012/05/19/plugin-directory-refreshed-what-it-means-for-developers/

But exposing them and making a nicer UX to find them is good.
