I didn't know about QJade, looks very interesting!
Initially for AppStream, we planned to use the OCS, but right now we
all agree that doing that is not the best idea (it's API is pretty
weird). My plan is to define a ratings&reviews API in AppStream sooner
or later, but I haven't looked into that closely yet, except for some
quick looks at the Ubuntu Software Center API for that, and KDEs
So, if you would like to help with that, and can create a good web API
for the collaboration stuff, we could certainly add it to the spec,
since that idea was part of AppStream from the beginning.
