One might look at the "competition" for inspiration. Looking at CPAN.
There's no "comments" feature, but there is a "CPAN RT" bug-tracker
which appears to be a way for users to submit comments/problems about
packages in a way common to all packages in CPAN, but distinct from
upstream's bug trackers/lists/etc. I'd assume that gets emailed to the
listed maintainer of the package as well as being accessible to other
users, although I don't really have any idea.
There might be something to be said for providing users a way to
provide feedback that doesn't require making a accounts in a bazillion
