Once the blocker bugs are fixed, this bug is about boosting our app ranking based on compatibility - so an app that is more compatible ranks higher in search results. This sounds complicated and error prone to me, but Rob seemed confident about it so filing the bug. :)

Elasticsearch does have ability to boost different ways and to do custom custom scoring for subsets of filters. It wouldn't take long to determine what's possible and a bit longer to implement and tune it. We do have a lot of boosts already. Perhaps part of this would be to review those other boosts, possibly removing some. Most were borrowed from AMO's searching.
Boosting changed a lot in Elasticsearch 1.0 and is more flexible, so I'm adding that as a dependency for this bug.
As discussed in IRC, it's unclear what "more compatible" means exactly. We will already be returning only compatible apps. Closing for now as invalid.
