Add some extra data to output of Plugin API

The plugin api seems to output everything except for those items that show on the other_notes section. Is it possible that the other_notes section could be added to the output of the plugin api?

I swear i had another ticket open for this.. But i cant find it. (Maybe I intended to open a ticket and forgot..)

Originally the "Other Notes" section WAS showing through, Well, Not as "Other Notes" but as "Changelog" "OTher Section" "Section2" (etc.). That seems to have changed though.

+1 for this. Couple more small requests:

  1. Would be possible to add the screenshots data to the Plugin API too? I thought it was in there previously but has disappeared. Maybe there have been some updates to the Plugin API recently.
  2. It would be great to get the URL of the plugin author's wordpress.org profile page. For example mine is http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/profile/johnbillion but there's no way to get this URL or even the slug or the username of the author.

It seems that the screenshots section in the wp.org API was implemented but doesn't show up for all plugins.

For example the screenshots section is present for the plugin 'Public Post Preview' but not for 'Global Post Passwords'.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Note that not all plugins have all sections.

That said, the following new (or fixed) things can now be returned by the API.

'author_profile' => profile_URL,
'contributors' => array( username => profile_URL, ... ),
'short_description' => short_description,
'sections' => array( section_name => section_text, ... ),
'description' => description_section_text

Available sections are "description", "installation", "faq", "screenshots", and "other_notes" (assuming the plugin has them).

You can ask for all three of short_description, sections, and description. sections['description'] will always be the same as description. short_description and description will sometimes be the same. short_description may also simply be a truncated version of description.
