Plugin Ratings/Review Overhaul

The ease of rating and reviewing a WordPress plugin is the only part of WordPress I see blatantly stuck in 2008.

If you have a WordPress website, you should be able to rate/review a plugin from WP-ADMIN/PLUGINS.PHP without needing to go to to create and account, and without having to leave the dashboard.

This would be like installing an iPhone app, hating it, wanting to review it, but having to leave the app store, go to, register with your deprecated icloud account, and only then could you leave a review.

Jetpack itself has over 1 Million active installs but only 847 ratings!!! This is total usability failure.
