I'm about to refactor m.d.n anyway (as I do every to years for the sheer
boredom). There are a few planned features like better statistics, a
dicussion forum for each package, better tracking of whether a package
was uploaded etc. But mainly it's important that we allow direct
comments from potential sponsors on the respective package page. Like
with IRC notification to the sponsorees if they are online.
So if anyone could tell me what features REVU has that m.d.n is lacking
then I'll consider adding them in the next release. I'm not active in
Ubuntu so I can't tell how things work there. I just see the commenting
feature and colorful icons there. ;)
Peer review means that you can feel better because someone else
missed the problem, too.
