Description (last modified by dd32)

Currently on plugin submissions we collect:

That's it, and we then infer everything from that, or ask for it via e-mail afterwards.

Unfortunately there are some things we can't reliably infer from that, such as:

  • If they want a specific plugin slug Implemented
  • If the plugin is a Block Plugin and should be auto-submitted to that upon approval.
  • If the plugin is commercial in nature (Ie. should be in our Commercial Supported section)
  • If the plugin is a Community plugin (Ie. is accepting of community submissions via a public code repository and will never be commercialised)

The plugin slug is a hard question to ask before submission, as ideally we'd pre-fill it with a slug based on their submission.

So perhaps this needs to be done as a post-ZIP-submission step where they can update some details after they've passed through the pre-checks of the uploader.
