Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

Background: #2614

The plugin readme file standard is currently linked to from six places:

Some of the handbook links used the old https://wordpress.org/plugins/about/readme.txt URL, which redirects to https://wordpress.org/plugins/developers/, but not directly to the file or at least to the "Readme Files" section.

Others used the outdated 2016/06/readme.txt link instead of the current one: 2017/03/readme.txt.

I've just updated the handbook links to point to https://wordpress.org/plugins/developers/#readme, which has a paragraph linking to the file. However, it would help to have a direct URL to the file, e.g. /plugins/files/readme.txt, that would work like https://wordpress.org/latest.zip.
