Hi people,

just FYI: Robert Lemke and I are currently working on official reviews 
*and* user-ratings for extensions in TER2. Reviews are almost ready now, 
and a lot of that rating stuff has also been written already.

I do work through this thread and will consider your proposals. However, 
there are already some points I'd like to mention:

- extension ratings will not be implemented as a generic service because 
we need them *soon* and they are too different from generic ratings. I 
can help with creating a generic rating service for TYPO3 when I have 
time, and you can, of course, use available code for this.

- I don't think an elaborate rating system makes sense because in most 
cases, it's not worth it. Weighted means (by reputation or usefullness 
meta-rating) are very hard to adjust properly and more often than not do 
not make any difference. I know people love to rate and review, but 
tyo3.org is not slashdot or amazon.

- regarding the ECT efforts: We will have to see if and when you can 
come up with a reliable certification -or whatever you call it- scheme 
for extensions *and* a reliable reviewing team so that we can expand the 
reviews or ratings to include such measures.
