This may sound dumb but IF it was possible to poll the repo and see what plugins are available you could recreate the search engine (similar to wp.org). That way, if a user wanted to find a plugin they could navigate to the site, do a search, find a plugin and be sent over to the wp.org site. This could include any type of 'rating' you wanted. Again, I am just throwing this out there.

You would just have a WP plugin like 'Review Plugin' that if you installed it you could rate whatever plugins you had installed (with amazing authentication =). No SVN or GIT or whatever needed. The reviews would get aggregated by the server and possibly supply links to the WordPress repo.

>>> Um what? We don't need to change the current SVN plugin submission process. This is another dead horse beat to death a few months ago when someone ranted on about moving from SVN go Git. Technically I think SVN can be considered a web service with a published API.
