As said, as for today most of the flesh is put on the success in
Downloads and in this sense it doesn't matter where are your commits as
far as your app has an entry in the application catalog and is receiving
good rates.

We can't create a perfect karma system and we don't even pretend to do
that. Any value can be tricked, any function can be improved and so on.

As a principle it makes sense that a maemo.org karma analyzes better
what is going on in *.maemo.org and puts more weight on that. You can
still be totally active in your own infrastructure and/or in ITt, SF,
upstream projects etc without putting a foot directly in *.maemo.org

Still people can rate your apps & news if you took care to aggregate
them to maemo.org. More can be done if we can extract data from i.e. ITt
or Ohloh.net. Let's see how all this progresses.
