[maemo-developers] Testing nonsense

there's another problem with the testing i am facing with gpxview: Nonsense ratings.
GPXView got a "thumbs down" for needing lots of porting to match the maemo6 gui.
Yes, harmattan! Why the heck should a fremantle program not be forwarded to 
extras due to the fact that it will be hard to port it to qt (which is what that guy
is imho trying to say)?

I am considering to entirely ignore the test process until this testing/promotion thing 
has actually proven to be useful. Dealing with people that just rate nonsense issues is 
a) a waste of time and b) frustrating. 

My proposals:
- Add links to the apps changelogs to the package rating page
- Add a small text telling the people what they are supposed to test (not harmattan
gui portability!!)
- Add a link to the bug tracker, so people can file appropriate bugs which can then
be processed in a useful manner
