If you hover over the Score header in the results list, it says:

Occurrence of search term weighted by field (name, summary, keywords,
description, author, maintainer)

I thought PyPI used to offer a 'kwality' score for packages, based on
the presence of installers, doc files, tests etc. Does anyone know
what happened to that?
