The projects.trapexit.org page does not bypass human involvement.

It does crawl the popular repos for erlang projects (although it
doesn't give Jungerl special treatment, which is the reason you
didn't find the parser as a separate project.) That is the
automated part.

It then allows people to rate projects based on a number of different
categories, or to add a wiki page or discussion post on trapexit.
That is the human interaction part.

There are numerous ways in which it could be improved and extended,
of course. We welcome constructive feedback on that point.
