Comment (by danieliser):

 Love it, I do think a weighted score is more appropriate though, currently
 not even any of the sites that scrape the WP plugin repo can sort by true
 rank, they always show plugins with 1 5 star at the top simply because its
 a perfect 5. Thats not truly representative of the info though as often
 the plugins own author is the first to review it... Cough Cough, realizing
 I did this..

 > I agree that user-controlled sorting and/or filtering will be useful.
 > Ratings are somewhat complex and deserve to be considered separately I
 think. The best way to deal with them as far as search is concerned is to
 compute a score when ratings are changed, using a method something like

 > ..and store the result in postmeta for ElasticSearch to use as a ranking
