Fault error message on plugin submission page

Reported by: mcguive7's profile McGuive7 Owned by: otto42's profile Otto42
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords:


I recently attempted to submit a plugin for review at with the word "WordPress" in the title. I kept receiving the following error message, even though the plugin name was not already taken (confirmed at

"That name already exists. Please choose another name."

I later learned that "WordPress" is a forbidden word for most plugin submission titles - the error message should indicate that this is the issue.

I know where this code is and I know why it's like that (I wrote that bit).

I'll look into making it more clear.
