  • I'm looking for a solution to this problem, but haven't found one yet. Simply adding the number of dists to the rating would distort the stats in favour of people with many dists. So I/we need to come up aith a way so that adding a new dist doesn't lower ones rating. Ideas welcome!

      Well, what's the kwalitee score used for?

      If it's used to determine the kwalitee of a module, it's useful to know whether someone else uses the module (actually, more interesting than some other stats).

      But the kwalitee of an author? That's just weird and not very useful except as a second-order measure of whether a module is good. So that number isn't very useful anyway, except as a vanity thing.

      Either you remove it altogether since people tend to misuse it.

      Or you game the number so that it steers behaviour in the right direction, i.e. you remove the point for "being a dependency" when you summarize the kwalitee score for an author.
