What problem is trying to address this app?

OK. We will have database of packages and tags. And we will be able to 
generate leaderboard for each tag. Will be able to make some conclusions 
from this? I'm afraid that the answer is "no".

Personally I would rather have something like popcon [1] for Fedora. 
Even that lots of Debian people are not participating in popcon, still 
lots of them do that. And it provides statistically significant sample 
of installations. And can be used for decisions which packages will be 
removed from installation DVD; which architecture is most used etc.
