Plugin Headers for Must-Use Plugins

Hey there! I'm currently working on a CLI tool to deploy WordPress apps to DigitalOcean. Check it out! It's free and open source.

You don’t necessarily need a plugin header for mu-plugins. Must-use plugins will be loaded regardless. Leaving the header out helps when you need to test something real quick, but when you see that your “test” starts shaping into a real plugin, do add a descriptive header — that’s just good practice :)
