Unfortunatly it doesn't look like that will be happening in the near future. 
(Last news entry is 1 year old.)

I know for a fact, that Rasmus Skjoldan is no longer involved. yet the info 
has not changed.

So I think a couple of changes needs to be done now!

How about writing a script, that checks all ext on TER to check if a 
docs/manual.sxw is present.
If not then send an automail to the autor of the ext, telling him/her that 
they have X days to provide a manual to their extension, otherwise it will 
be removed from TER. (Something similar could be done to weed out the ext. 
without descriptions.)

I think that will filter out a lot of (useless?) extensions.

The rating/vote system should be more prominent. Right now it says "No 
ratings" until the ext. have 3+ ratings, and no link to the rating form. 
(You 1st have to click the ext. name, and then the Ratings tab)
But when it has 3+ ratings, the text now links diretly to the rating form.
So how about changing the text "none" on ext with less than 3 ratings to 
"rate now" and make it a link just like on 3+ ratings?

It can't be that hard to add some text like that on the page where you 
register ext. keys. ;)
