I think the differences in score are a good idea, but maybe not just as 
he laid them out.  The idea would be to make sure that participating in 
Trac would be worth something, but submitting a patch that's accepted 
would be worth more.  Additionally, we'd have to have some way to add 
reputation for editing the codex, but penalties if your changes to the 
codex are reverted (so people don't bump their reputation by adding 
bogus info to the codex).  It definitely needs some serious thought.
