readme.txt 81% from 16 tests

Don't ignore readme.txt as it is the file that instructs WordPress.org on how to present your plugin to the world
These attributes need to be fixed:
  • Tags: Too many tags (11 tag instead of maximum 10); only the first 5 tags are used in your directory listing
  • Screenshots: No descriptions were found for these screenshots #2, #3 in customize-wpadmin/assets to your readme.txt
  • Plugin Name: Write the name of your plugin instead of "Plugin Name" on the first line ( === customize-wpadmin === )
The official readme.txt is a good inspiration
