Ah, that's a bit different. I use updates-testing (or rawhide) and have kitchen
sink type installs, so lots of updates I get in updates-testing I don't
actually use. For things I don't actually use I just end up reporting about
installation problems. For things I do use, I usually have only been doing
karma when I am following up on a bug I have encountered.

But if easy-karma makes it easy to give karma for things I do use, then it's
probably worth taking a look at.
