Review: Append some information to the ZIP urls

Description

When a plugin is in review state, reviewers often copy the download URL and pass that to a script to help run their reviews.

It would be helpful to the reviewers if there was an easy way to infer extra details about the plugin while performing the review.

So far the only thing requested has been the slug of the plugin in the ZIP, but I expect that it would be helpful to know the ID of the in-review plugin post and possibly other items in the future.

It seems the simplest way right now to provide scripts with extra details is just to append to the ZIP URL, ie https://wordpress.org/plugins/.....dsplugin.zip?slug=d-test-plugin&post_id=12345&....=....

I see a good solution before we could get that info via API. I'd suggest to add the email of the author and domain of the header uri, so we could check the owner issues.

I think it would be great to have:

  • Plugin slug.
  • Plugin ID.
  • Author username.
  • Author email.
  • Plugin status in the repository (so we know we are checking a new plugin or a plugin already published in the repository)

The domain of the header URI won't be needed as that will be already in the plugin files and can be taken from there.
