"Feedback on Marketplace Extensions"
I had a note from Jan Czogalla @jczogalla at Dortmund University back in April. We had been conversing on the subject of the two extensions Jan has written for RapidMiner.
For those of you unfamilar with these they are the extension that enables you to bring HDF5 files into RapidMIner
and, very useful to those of you looking top create you own extensions, the Rapid Development extension.
Jan's feedback was that, as a developer, it is quite difficult to get... feedback. Although we have the pages referenced above where you can add comments, in reality nobody does - because you all download the extensions directly from RapidMiner, without ever visiting the Marketplace Website. All that Jan, and others get is the download count. Jan has had over 4.5K downloads of his extensions, but would like your opinions on how well they work today and what you would like to see in the future.
