Regarding scoring, I think this is necessary reading:

     http://www.evanmiller.org/how-not-to-sort-by-average-rating.html

We're all for taking a scientific approach, of course :)

So it seems there needs to be a measure of upvotes, and the amount of 
total attention the package is getting.

Keeping track of upvotes vs. page views or download counts would also 
probably do. The problem with page views and downloads is making sure 
robots are filtered out from the data.

I'm not sure voting users is at all necessary.

 > 3. Should we have points for comments? and should we have downvote?

For comments, I think upvotes are enough to determine positive vs. total 
hits. There should also be an option to "flag" content for moderator 
attention (meaning spam/etc).
