I think he might be referring to the information that's displayed on the
repository page for the plugin, in which case he would probably want to take
a look at the readme file information and standards located here:


As for changing the name of your plugin within the repository, I don't
believe you can - once a repository is set up it's relatively permanent. If
you wanted to change the name of your plugin you would have to request a new
repository be set up under the new name.
