Fault error message on plugin submission page

Reported by: McGuive7 Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: WordPress.org Site Keywords: needs-patch needs-testing
Focuses: Cc:


I recently attempted to submit a plugin for review at http://wordpress.org/plugins/add/ with the word "WordPress" in the title. I kept receiving the following error message, even though the plugin name was not already taken (confirmed at http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/):

"That name already exists. Please choose another name."

I later learned that "WordPress" is a forbidden word for most plugin submission titles - the error message should indicate that this is the issue.

Hi McGuive7, this should actually be reported over to http://meta.trac.wordpress.org/, now. I've gone ahead and opened one up there for you: https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/280.
