I think that I'm following better now.
The extension option doesn't sound workable for what I have in mind. I'd
like the score to be visible without needing to be logged in, which I
believe means that the feature can't be conditional on having access to
The solution to click on a talk page link for an updated score sounds
more workable. It would be best if the score refreshed automatically every
time someone viewed the talk page for the purpose that I have in mind, but
I don't know what kind of performance penalty and computing resources that
would require. If either of those are nontrivial, then having a template on
the talk page that says something like "Score last refreshed on TIME DATE.
There have been X revisions since that time. Click here to update the
score" would be good for the use case that I have in mind.

and it might make some people mad. We can have an initial release and
update it on demand (like adding a link to the score in the template. If

Adding it to the ores extension will make things much easier. You just
need to enable it in your beta features and then in the talk page or
action=info you will see the score. Implementing it is difficult due to
storage issues for the database and we might need to get operations
approval before continuing.
