It's totally OK for me to have the service hosted on the GNOME
Infrastructure so I'd suggest you to go through [1].

> also the "star ratings" we give to apps. Any application /could/
> upload or consume reviews, but so far only GNOME Software does. We've
> got about two dozen different distributions using it too, although the

> uses is tiny (actual numbers on request) as it is a simple flask
> python3 web application that just needs access to a database and
> serves up JSON blobs back to gnome-software to parse.
> Teams of moderators (typically also using gnome-software) moderate any
> submissions flagged for review, and end users decide the review
> popularity based on the usual "Was this review useful to you:  Yes :
> No" type buttons. This has been in operation for about 6 months. I've
> had reliability issues with OpenShift (and it costs quite a bit per
> month to host a HA site) and quite a few people have asked me to ask
> here if the site would be suitable to move to a GNOME VM.
