Perhaps this from [1]

<blockquote>Modules are plugins for Drupal that extend its core 
functionality. Only use matching versions of modules with Drupal. 
Modules released for Drupal 5.x will not work for Drupal 6.x. These 
contributed modules are not part of any official release and may not be 
optimized or work correctly.</blockquote>

should be displayed as the ``header'' of each project page?  The last 
sentence is what needs to be displayed to every user about all the 
module releases, not just -dev.  And has been stated a means to review, 
such as adding comments on the project page, the module would be 
beneficial to trustworthiness.
