Hey everyone,
some time back there was a post on the list which gave a rough idea on how
themes and plugins are uniquely identified on WordPress.org to located the
right update packages etc.
Can anyone here give me some more insights?

Obviously, plugin names are not unique. Author+plugin name won't do the
trick either I guess. The author can change. How is .org doing it?
