Description

https://wordpress.org/plugins/developers/readme-validator/

If a readme.txt is over 10k it should throw an error (not warning) as that will stop parsing right.

We should show warnings at 8k I think, since that's when they'll start to get into trouble.

Add a warning to display to the user if the readme size is larger than 8kb.

I added a warning that gets displayed at the bottom of the list if the readme file/data exceeds 8kb.

I added this copy:

"Your readme file is large. Try to reduce content to keep it more concise."

Open to better suggestions!
