digitalmars.D - Tending packages in dub registry

reply aberba <karabutaworld gmail.com> writes:
Currently, the dub registry shows the most popular packages which 
pretty much always stays same...probably some are used as 
dependencies in other popular libs, raising their download count 
(which I believe is or is part of what's used for the ranking).

That alone is not very useful , I think I would like to see 
something like trending packages... to get a sense of what people 
are using as a first sign when choosing a package in the dub 
registry.. or yet still, allow us to see sort/see other/all 
packages based on popularity.

I think a better way would be to have a rotation and then show packages with only a specific ranking like > 2.5 or something. That way the list will change, but it'll still be of packages that are "popular". I agree that it's not really a great column to have. The alternative to a rotation would be listing top packages for different categories.

What I don't like is that you get penalized for Open Issues... which is a good indicator of popularity. Also if you have 10 open Issues you get the same rating whether you have 0 closed issues or 100 closed issues. But to me, the ratio of open/close is a measure of how well a project is maintained.

I'd make sense if the issues were all bugs, but that'd rely on the package maintainer to accurately assign labels.
