Ooh.  Neato.  Big fan.
I'll be honest and say I'm not a big fan of the user interface though.
I think there's too much stuff hidden in sub webpages (whatever) which
makes entering data cumbersome and error-prone.

Agreed, nuke it from the web interface and convert the current
maintainer ratings to "application test data".

Computation?  Quah?  Why not just show the most up-to-date rating?

That's what is going to be most precise and what most folks want anyway.
(A notice if the rating doesn't match the most recently released Wine
might be nice.)
