#2830 closed enhancement (fixed)

Plugin Directory: Include slug in submission emails

Reported by: ipstenu's profile Ipstenu Owned by: tellyworth's profile tellyworth
Milestone: Plugin Directory v3.0 Priority: normal
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords: has-patch


To mitigate the accidents of "Oh no! I didn't want THAT slug!" we should let people know what the slug's going to be when the plugin is submitted.

This patch tells them in two places:

1) The in-page notice of "Submission in!"

2) The email of "We got it!"

Both detail what the slug is and remind developers not to resubmit and just email us if there's a problem. This MAY result in a lot of weird emails about "WooCommerce! We need woo!" but that's better than after-approval complaints about bad slugs. I think. If I'm wrong, we'll try again.

2830.2.diff updates translator comments.

2830.3.diff is a combined patch with the changes from #2788, as they have some overlap. Whichever one gets committed first, should fix the other one as well :)

2830.4.diff is the same as 2830.3.diff, but with raw email address converted to a mailto: link for better UX.
