I share your concern. Thats why I aimed high: 15 -20 developers on this. Note 
that I already addressed the issue of developers being buisy.

Again: No-one is against a rating system here, it seems. But I and Károly were 
bot addresssing the same point, which cannot be solved wit rating. 

I suggest we either split focus here, or we make this into a 

We have a security issue wiith CVS commits
We have a problem with developers duplicating fatr too many code  and making 
incompatible, somteimes even plain crappy modules. 
We have a problem with people not being able to find modules. 

Again: I cant be #rsed about the third one, in fact I dont beleive that is the 
case at all: If you cannot even take an hour to find the correct modules for 
your site: then you are prolly not wrth them ;). No, serious: This /is/ 
another issue, that should not be integrated into this project, for then we 
will really never get to a conclusion.
The same goes for Dries's answer about firefox's extention site. That is fine, 
the idea is really great, and the amount of extensions/modules are very 
similar. But really: we should not start including that discussion here.
