So I ran into this issue before and was able to get it fixed by using the get POT from the admin side of WordPress.org. However, with this plugin when I make the POT file it doesn't have the plugin description inside it. Any ideas why this would be happening?

The code for the plugin can be found here: https://github.com/pderksen/WP-Stripe-Checkout

You can see I added the Text Domain and Domain Path plugin headers as well.

Thanks for any help!

The makepot code being used on WordPress.org is a slightly older version that we have not updated yet, specifically with this fix: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/25665

Basically, it's only looking in stripe.php for your main plugin lines, not searching for and then finding stripe-checkout.php.

This was fixed in the developer tools 7 weeks ago: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/27399

But the change has not propagated to everywhere yet.
