Richard is right.

Packaginator lets you stand up your own version of the tool, which
merely grabs from PyPI various stats. While Packaginator core will
never include a private rating system (everything is based on hard
metrics because ratings are too easily skewed), we are working on an
API so you can add that sort of functionality to your own instance
without forking so hard you can't accept patches.

However, as for integrating the complexity of OpenSocial API, thats
something you can do in your own fork.
