While the algorithm is still being tuned and maemo team is adding more
karma calculation plugins, you can see the current "top contributors"
list in:


Karma (with details on where it came from) is available in a profile
page. For example:


Your own karma is also in:


There will be recount every night, so once you have linked your
garage, bugzilla, maemo.org and mailing list accounts together (mostly
by using a consistent email address everywhere), your stats will start

Comments welcome, as always :-)

Plugins can be developed independently of the actual module and we're
happy to receive ideas of potential karma data sources.
