Apparently, they chose the top 40 most active on Feb 20, 2006 for each
category. But, I wonder how they measured it for that day. Firebird
was ranked at 49 and, as an example of one that is nominated,
InstantObject was somewhere above 700. Ideally, they should've use an
average over a period of time.

It does affect the ratings. Also, the last file release date also
affects the rating. The rating takes into account three categories:
site traffic, development and communication. I was able to find that
info in Sourceforge's documentation.
