Brainstorm seems to be missing (maybe the generic vote/comment score can
apply, but surely proposals/solutions themselves are worth something ?).
The current scoring scheme does not take into account developers who don't
develop end-user software (like libraries). No idea how to honor that except
for download/spike counting.
Also, you don't mention bugs.maemo.org, with more karma for apps it's somewhat
better (reporting 3-5 bugs, regardless of report quality was roughly equal to
writing (!) an app). Anyhow, if possible, maybe it would make sense to include
bug status (i.e. karma for developers fixing the bugs in question, or no karma
for duplicate, invalid, etc bugs). Yes, this can be tricky with projects
handling their own bugs, but then again, it's the same now - you get karma
only for reporting bugs on projects in b.m.o.
Overall, I feel maybe the new proposal is noticeably tilted towards
developers, non-dev community members will very likely have difficulty 'keeping
up' with dev karma (which may or may not be what you want).
