I looked it up:

Every registered user of freshmeat may rate a project featured

Rating is calculated like this:
weighted rank (WR) = (v ÷ (v+m)) × R + (m ÷ (v+m)) × C

  R = average for the project (mean) = (Rating)
  v = number of votes for the project = (votes)
  m = minimum votes required to be listed in the top 20 (currently 20)
  C = the mean vote across the whole report

The vitality score for a project is calculated like this:
(announcements * age) / (time since last_announcement)
[announcements of releases]

Popularity is calculated as
((record hits + URL hits) * (subscriptions + 1))^(1/2)

Can this be useful?
