Hi there, Certification would go some way to separating mature projects from those in their infancy, but in my mind what the existing Plone/Zope product repositories lack most is a mechanism for user feedback.
I would like to see: 1. Some kind of self-submission categorizing (or classification) as per the existing attempts at categorization 2. A peer vote based ranking system that can be used as a sort, with a nominal minimum number of votes before it can be ranked. 3. Another sort by 'popular' packages - ie by the number of votes above average 4. Certified 1-4 packages getting listed first 5. User comments I think this would go a long way to identify those little gems that otherwise only get picked up by accident or referral from the mailing lists because the author has no real interest in the process, and needs cajoling just to write up some adequate docs. Certification processes seem likely to reflect the existing use of a package rather than encourage new development or innovation.
