When viewing extensions alphabetically some extensions pop to the top. Paid placements? Favoritism? No, it appears the extension name has initial spaces, and the web site includes them in its sort order. To forestall a "space wars" scenario initial spaces should be stripped before being added to the DB or otherwise not counted in the sort order. Filing confidential just in case these are accidents, but it's fairly obvious.

I wouldn't call this security sensitive.
ok, no it's not really a security issue. Just didnt know how quickly this would get fixed and didn't want lots of people jumping on the bandwagon. I don't know if name changes have to go through the review queue, general knowledge could create a gold-rush of people trying to get better placement. But I'm fine if you want to remove the flag. Sounds like it was simple to fix anyway.
Fixed, pushed to prod, so clearing security flag
