In an attempt to translate this discussion into some concrete action  
points, here is a first proposal:


The advantage is that is can be automated (no manual work) and that  
it promotes active projects over inactive projects, good maintainers  
over bad maintainers, etc.  Also, it provides useful information to  
user -- something which is important on its own (if you look at  
Kieran's survey results).
