Blueprint work earns much more karma than other activity

Bug Description

In the "quit-applet-plus" project I have 38957 points for Specification Tracking Karma (23 blueprints) and 1492 points for the Bazaar Branches Karma (115 commits). I could imagine that creation of blueprints may produce more karma than the code commits, but in every case the difference is too big here...

The problem could be, that blueprints changing (after creation) produces to much karma.

P.S. I have 85 points for Translations, but I think, it's OK, in comparison to the Bazaar Branches karma points (1492).

Changed in launchpad:

I was by programming (commits) at least as active as when writing the documentation (blueprints). The difference between both karmas is still too big...

You have probably right, the Launchpad calculates karma as expected, but the current logic doesn't represent the quote above...

Sure. I didn't say it did :) I just wanted to document the situation as it stands.
