Add open graph tags for plugin repo

Description

It seems that plugins in the repository do not have proper open graph tags, leading to undpredictable results when shared via various social networks.

It would probably make sense to use the plugin banner (if provided), optionally falling back to a WordPress logo.

Could you give some examples of what might be appropriate?

I'm thinking the icon might make more sense than the banner.

Replying to Otto42:

I'm thinking the icon might make more sense than the banner.

I was thinking that generally when shared to Facebook, Google+, or other sites that make use of the open meta tags it's generally going to look better with a landscape (wide) image rather than a portrait (tall) or square image.

So the plugin repo does have OG image tags now, using the plugin header when it's available. I don't know whether we really should go further in terms of adding input fields or whatever for sharing, my personal preference would be not to.

Maybe @otto42 can give his opinion here :)

Confirmed, example from Jetpack:

<meta property='og:title' content='Jetpack by WordPress.com' />
<meta property='og:description' content='Your WordPress, Simplified.' />
<meta property='og:site_name' content='WordPress.org' />
<meta property='og:type' content='website' />
<meta property='og:image' content='https://ps.w.org/jetpack/assets/banner-1544x500.png?rev=1279667' />
