Question Looking for a site that Ranks Packages...

Hey everyone. I'm looking for any good sites that Rank different apps and packages for linux. I had found one but forgot to bookmark it and now I can't find it. You could go thru categories, they were ranked by users and such. I want to say I got to it somehow doing a search for Gnome, but I can't remember. Anyways, does anyone have any good sites to check out that would rank different packages such as Xine, xmms...ect.....

Thanks alot,

(but I'm working on it)

One of my favorites is freshmeat. They have a decent ranking system, and a pretty good categorization/search feature. It's also good for keeping an eye on packages you like, by subscribing to new release notifications.
