Please help me with this.

Plugin has been removed from WordPress.org

This means that a plugin is no longer available to install from WordPress.org. Plugins can be removed from WordPress.org for a variety of reasons, including that the author intentionally stopped its development or converted it to a “paid only” plugin. A plugin can also be removed if it violates WordPress.orgs terms of service or if it contains vulnerabilities. If it contains vulnerabilities, it may be restored to the repository within a few days. As a general recommendation, unless you are familiar with the code in the plugin, we suggest that plugins that have been removed from the WordPress.org repository are removed from your site.

Example scan result
The Plugin "Plugin Name" has been removed from wordpress.org.
It may have compatibility problems with the current version of WordPress or unknown security issues.

Resolution
In most cases, we recommend removing the plugin and finding a similar plugin that is being actively maintained. Some hosts pre-install some plugins on all new WordPress sites, so if you have a plugin installed that you have never used, and it is no longer available on WordPress.org, it is best to remove it.

There may also be rare cases where a plugin you have from another source shares a name with a WordPress.org plugin, so if you know that is the case, it would not be necessary to remove it.

I really hope this is an inadvertent failure to renew some date somewhere.  I've used RefTagger for years on my own blog and love it.  How do we get the attention of the developers/owners of the plugin?

I've contacted the teams that should be able to look into this issue.  Thank you for reporting it.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

We are unaware of any action we may have taken that would have resulted in the plugin being closed. I have contacted WordPress and will update this thread as more information is available.
