Maintenance suggestions

Package is pre-v0.1 release. (-10 points)

While nothing is inherently wrong with versions of 0.0.*, it might mean that the author is still experimenting with the general direction of the API.

The description is too long. (-10 points)

Search engines display only the first part of the description. Try to keep the value of the description field in your package's pubspec.yaml file between 60 and 180 characters.
