  I feel a bit sad because I'm pretty certain that if this service had been
set up 10 years ago, in the same timespan that it has been now there would
probably have been several hundreds (if not over a thousand) modules, and
a significantly higher percentage of ratings and comments.

  (OTOH the average *quality* of the modules would probably have been
significantly lower. If there's anything positive about the situation is
that mostly the experienced hard-core users are submitting their include
files, and they tend to be of rather high quality.)

Well, I wasn't looking for conclusions, but one thing does stand out:  There is
some mechanism that prioritizes the primary administrator's submissions for
compliance review.  What that mechanism might be, I'm not going to speculate.
