Description Nate Graham 2018-01-29 15:14:45 UTC
Not showing the overall star ratings for apps has always been a minor source of confusion for me, and a major linux distro reviewer objected to this as well in his review of the 5.12 beta: http://www.ocsmag.com/2018/01/27/plasma-5-12-long-term-sweetness/

"For instance, if you go into any which program, to see additional details, you get [...] no rating, even though there’s a link to program reviews."

We should consider exposing the star rating.

Display star ratings

For quite some time, users and reviewers have been asking for Discover to display star ratings. This is really useful information, and becomes especially important now that we have multiple sort modes. People will think, "this list may be sorted by rating, but what **ARE** the ratings?"

This patch adds star ratings to the browse and search lists, and the detailed view pages.

It also adjusts the look of the delegates to better accommodate stars without becoming cluttered.
FIXED-IN: 5.13.0

Depends on D11842, because we need the extra space gained by removing the less-useful categories.
