Often overlooked, readme.txt is one of the most important files in your plugin
These attributes need to be fixed: You can look at the official readme.txt

The primary PHP file in "CM Curated List Manager" version 1.1.0 is used by WordPress to initiate all plugin functionality
It is important to fix the following:
  • Main file name: The principal plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("cm-curated-list-manager.php" instead of "cm-list-manager.php")
  • Description: If Twitter did it, so should we! Keep the description under 140 characters (currently 179 characters long)
