Has someone lost points because package name is not according to code conventions? If it starts with "suncertify" it is not in fact right.
"The prefix of a unique package name is
always written in all-lowercase ASCII letters
and should be one of the top-level domain names, currently com, edu, gov, mil, net, org, or one of the English two-letter codes identify-ing countries as specified in ISO Standard 3166, 1981."

That�s what I named my root package. I got an overall score of 153. They took of two points on the general consideration section. So you could say that they did it because of the naming of the package, but personally I don�t think so.
I agree. Here's the link:
