You should put a lot of thought into formatting readme.txt as it is used by WordPress.org to prepare the public listing of your plugin
Attributes that need to be fixed:
  • Screenshots: These screenshots do not have images: #1 (Able to browse through various saved slideshow, and view their shortcode), #2 (Featuring guider, to assist you when you are facing troubles.)
The official readme.txt might help

responsive-slides/responsive-slider.php 92% from 13 tests

The main file in "Responsive Slides" v. 2.0 serves as a complement to information provided in readme.txt and as the entry point to the plugin
The following require your attention:
