It is now introduced through the basic coefficient:
  2 - (popcon_rank / 10000)
using the "source", "inst" ranking, e.g. hotplug's score will be
multiplied by around 1.9, while fujiplay's score will be multiplied by
around 1.03 (but it's no longer on the page as I closed the bugs a few
hours ago).

Thanks for your comments.
