[Catalog-sig] Can the 'score' system be explained on PyPI?

In doing research on Python powered SOAP libraries I was advised to
check out SUDS. My PyPI search
(http://pypi.python.org/pypi?%3Aaction=search&term=SOAP&submit=search)
showed that SUDS has a '2' score.

Nowhere on the search results page is 'score' explained. Is it how
likely it turns up in searches? The number of downloads compared to
everything else? Or... dare I say... the results of a rating system?

Fixing this one is easy. Just put some text at the top of the search
page explaining what 'score' means.

Thanks!
