@tellyworth
You posted a suggestion about adding a new info for plugin authors about recent search terms - this was in February 2017. Is this still being worked on?

This would be a blessing for plugin authors to gather more information in order to make their plugin pages more friendly and relevant for users.

I agree that this should only be available to logged-in authors of the plugin (not committers, but the "owning" .org accunt only).

Can we expect this will land somewhere soon on our plugin pages?
I have quite a few plugins on .org and this would totally help me.

Thanks in advance!
