There's an open bug about this; but basically it's because you're on a
prerelease gnome-shell and the shell extension site is give us a
subset of results. Fix in progress serverside.

The ones from the extension site are pretty poor generally. After a
long period of not having an upstream maintainer we now have some
fresh blood so maybe we have some engineering resources to look at
this now.

What's the best way for an individual to get involved here to help make this data better?

Can you file this as an upstream bz against gnome-software please; we
should have a mechanism to "block" things that just don't work.

I'm away from my computer at the moment, but if you could open an
upstream bug with the --verbose trace I can have a look at it later.

Done, and filed as:
