I'm not sure how this is accomplished. If there is a way that I can contribute to making this happen more easily for any plugin authors/developers I'd be happy to help. Since this is both a Plugin Directory change and something for the Support Forum I went with setting the Component as "Plugin Directory". If the component needs to be changed to something else please don't hesitate to update it. If there is some guideline or criteria that our plugin is expected to follow in order for this request to be granted please share that in reply to this ticket. Thanks!

That's not possible. All plugins in our system have their own view of the plugin support forums. These are meant for user-to-user support, they are not a ticketing system. Having a plugin hosted here means having a forum view for users to communicate with, and having a review system for them. This is not optional and it cannot be turned off nor redirected.

Both bbPress and BuddyPress are on our own systems. They use the infrastructure, and share logins with the systems. They are official systems, and part of the whole.

If you want to be hosted here, then the support forums are part of the package.

Duplicate of #5426.

I agree that community support should be available regardless of whether plugin authors choose to support their plugins or not (whether on .org or elsewhere), but there may be a way to help reduce confusion.
Marking this ticket as a duplicate, so the proposal is visible for anyone who feels passionate about this matter. :)
