Re: Remove Pornographic Apps from the "Apps available for download"


A blacklist strikes me as decidedly unmaintainable, unless something
is happening at a deep level to tag packages from the start. What is
stopping the "Apps available for download" feature from presenting
apps only when it has some reasonable expectation they might be of
interest to the end user? For example, rated above three stars, highly
related to the current search (search string contains "database:" show
LibreOffice Base), icon isn't tiny, search hasn't turned up many
installed applications…

I think it has had two cycles, so is there actual research to say that
the current "throw everything at the screen and hope it sticks"
approach is being useful?
