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).
