Plugin Pending Approval Questions

I have published different variations of a plugin and then noticed all are Pending Approval.
The documentation says: Note that non-prefixed groups require manual approval the first time one is published.

Can some please explain this? What is the preferred naming?

Can someone involved in the process help me remove the plugins variations and version I don’t need?

All new plugins require manual approval now. There used to be a way to publish a plugin to a group without a gradle.plugin prefix and link it to the plugin portal without going through a manual approval process.

If you have particular requests, you can open it here (this is easier for us to keep track of special requests):

Thank you it looks as if the plugin has been approved.
