#5975 new enhancement

Plugin Directory: Show name of committer being removed in JavaScript confirmation.

Description

When removing a committer from a plugin, a JavaScript confirmation is shown with the text generic text "Are you sure you would like to remove this committer?" (or similar).

To avoid mistakes, it would be helpful if the confirmation included the committers name and/or username. Something along the lines of "Are you sure you would like to remove @peterwilsoncc's commit access?"

An alternative may be to highlight the committer's name in yellow while the confirmation dialog is open.

  • Priority changed from normal to high

Every confirmation message on the plugin-author facing options screen needs better confirmations (That default to aborting the process).

We'd be better off migrating all the destructive actions to an inline modal confirming the action with a full description. (I consider adding/removing committers to be potentially destructive)

I'm shifting this to priority:high because it'll make plugin reviewers lives easier if they don't have to fix problems plugin authors accidentally cause due to bad author actions/confirmations, and accidentally removing/adding the wrong people to be a committer could have all sorts of unforeseen issues.
