Smarter default sorting
What do you suggest?
It would be really useful if the default sorting of extensions upon search was a bit smarter. This means that properties really relevant to humans should have a higher weight:
- number of downloads
- date of last update
- number of supported TYPO3 LTS versions
- (possibly more)
This is slightly related to #168 (closed) but aims at the default sorting.
Users should get a useful suggestion for their searches. It is safe to assume that anyone who actually searches by terms instead of directly opening the detail page of an extension doesn't really know the most common and proven solutions.
Add an use case
A search for registration currently yields the following result:
You can clearly see the mixed "quality" of the search results. The top hit is
registration due to the exact name match but it's probably the extension most unlikely to solve the issue at hand since it is alpha, outdated and officially does not support any TYPO3 version. Instead
sr_feuser_register should be the top hits, the number of downloads support this assumption.
