How about something like Tagadelic on all the words in the description of
the module. That would encourage people to do better descriptions as well as
being a measure of duplication. Big letters might not be good except for
modules that do something good with CCK or Views which would boost their

I had an idea for a module. That was half a year ago now. I knew nothing

because I want it to be. It's not ready for the big time. It is proof of

just what it can and can not do.
This story works both ways, I guess. I'm exactly the kind of person some
people would like to clear out. And other people would like to
encourage, in the hope that 1 in 9 of the efforts might hit something
Following David Meltzer yesterday, who sees a couple of basic arguments
on separate threads.... I don't have time to read through all of this,
There is another way of avoiding duplicates, besides review. If the
cataloguing was good, you'd see the duplicates fast. And if cataloguing
was good, you get minor efforts, such as my own, further down the pile.
When I started my module, I searched Drupal modules and came up with 9 -
12 other modules, all in separate places. It took me hours. Not an
adverse criticism folks, I'd rather contrib was big than small. And I'm
another person who will not be applying myself to this right now (though
there is a thought).
Me, I'd rather make suggestions
Now that is a search facility I like.
