Discussion is mailing lists, I think, right? 2*sqrt(#posts) seems a bit
drastic - a mailing list post seems like a bigger contribution than a
comment, no?

Is this consistent with more karma for doers?

Do you have any stats on how karma might distribute after application?
This seems like an awful lot of karma, especially if you're "only"
responsible for porting several popular packages to Maemo. It's also a
very big jump from 2.xx stars to 3 stars. Shouldn't application related
karma be continuous with stars & votes? Why separate <3 stars & >=3
stars? Is the theory that "bad" applications don't deserve so much karma?
