Often overlooked, readme.txt is one of the most important files in your plugin
These attributes need your attention:
  • Contributors: Plugin contributors field is missing

You can take inspiration from this readme.txt

"Anti-Hacker - Security Plugin" version 0.5.3's primary PHP file adds more information about the plugin and serves as the entry point for WordPress
The following require your attention:
  • Main file name: The principal plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("anti-hacker.php" instead of "wpah-index.php")
  • Domain Path: The domain path folder was not found ("/languages")
  • Text Domain: If you choose to specify the text domain, it must be the same as the plugin slug; optional since WordPress version 4.6
