How do want to deal with users that are not always online? So I would
vote against an integeration in the normal user interface.

I think that a simple link to a wiki could be a better approach: "Get
more information and user reviews of BLABLA on the Wiki"

But you would still have to think about i18n/l10n.

Furthermore are there already existing data pools? I know that wikipedia
holds a lot of information about open source software.

Finally we already have got a user rating, that is quite a lot more
helpful than a voting systems: popularity contest. So only apps that are
actually installed and used regularly get high rates. You can see this
feature in the latest gnome-app-install of edgy.
