Plugin Directory Admin: Show email addresses of committers

Reported by: Ipstenu Owned by: coffee2code
Milestone: Plugin Directory v3.0 Priority: normal
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords: has-patch has-screenshots


When we send out emails about security or guideline issues, we send them to everyone with commit access to a plugin. Not having this on the page for the plugin admin makes it a little harder to get the information.

Attached patch displays the email address.

Needs someone with a better DB of the directory to double check. I manually manipulated the DB I have to include committers.

Works as expected on my install, although emails don't quite fit in the narrow column: 2713.PNG.

Maybe a <a href="mailto:...">Email</a> link would be better (2713.2.diff, 2713.2.PNG)? Browsers would also show a "Copy email address" option in context menu in that case.

I'd also expect for the username to link to WP.org profile, as in the author card. 2713.3.diff addresses that.

Usability wise, we don't need to to be a mail-to, since right now we have to manually copy the emails into another form... Having it hidden behind link makes it a worse experience for how it's used.

We copy the email addresses to paste into a SupportPress email form.

What about putting the emails on a line below the user name, and moving 'remove' to be an X on the right most column?

Attached a patch to show what I mean. We don't need a link to email anyone, we literally need to be able to copy the email because SupportPress is silly :)

  • Keywords has-screenshots added
  • Milestone set to Plugin Directory v3.0

2713.5.diff is the same as 2713.4.diff, but with the link to WP.org profile, for consistency with the author card.
