Hi Kasper, hi list,

I just started monitoring this list and decided to help on coordinating
  the set up of an extension rating system within the ECT. I know right
now most of your time is very valuable due to the release of 4.0, so I
just make some comments on the this thread and will get back to your
answers if you had the time to deal with them.

+1 with some additions:

-  A rating systems should be developed on two different levels:
-- users: rating system as described above
-- official TYPO3 members / users: quality assurance system including in
depth analysis of the source code, programming techniques, etc.

- Rating categories like proposed ones for both levels:
-- users: documentation, insallation, daily usage, layout apaptions, etc.
-- official: security, compatibility, accessibility, configuration,
tempalte usage, etc.

I prepared a proposoal [1] during the foundation phase of the ECT and
will set up a first draft of a project description within the next days
on the wiki as well.

Wit best regards ... and keep up the good work. I think 4.0 will impress
the CMS community all around the world.

With best regards
