#5903 new enhancement

Warn when a plugin tag is made, but never released

Description

Sometimes plugin authors tag a release, but forget to bump the Stable Tag: line in their trunk readme.txt.

When this happens, we should alert the plugin author to the fact that the version wasn't released.

In order to give the plugin author time to actually do the release, perhaps we should only notify them after X hours of the tag being created, but the release not being made.

Initial gut feeling is that an hour is a good "Hey, did you forget to release it?".

This would likely also go well with a "Hey, you created a new tag and set it live! Congrats, one small error though - It looks like you didn't increase your plugin version in the headers?" warning.
