Hi folks,

first of all I would like to thank Michael Scharkow very much for his great
work on the Extension Review functionality!

There is just one problem I just discovered:

While testing the new functionality, I submitted my opinion about the
"eleon_advancedlogin" extension [1].

This extension is quite dangerous because it allows submission of
be-passwords in cleartext.

However, as you can see my rating is not displayed in the overview list
because there is a minimum of 3 reviews before it gets listed.

I understand the idea behind this, but I'm not sure if it is good in cases
like this.

Here are some solutions to prevent this problem:
- Introduce "trusted" reviewers whose reviews appear always
- Remove the limit
- Or add a new checkbox to request that some admin looks at the entry

What do you think?
- michael
