Actually, your plugin is indeed listed on your profile. Click the Plugins
link on the left hand side:

Usernames that include things like periods should definitely include those
in readme.txt files as well. The contributors list should contain usernames
as-they-are, not what the slug for them ends up being. I believe that
capitalization matters too, but I may have already fixed that somewhere.

In the future, we'll likely disallow odd characters in newly made
usernames, for simplification purposes.
