Is there any solid software or scripting package available?

I want users to not only contribute but also rank the existing content by their vote. Anything off the shelf out there that works well?

Do you mean where members rate others' posts? Why not look at something like Slashcode [slashcode.com] or Scoop [scoop.kuro5hin.org]. Neither are particularly easy to set up, but both are free/open source.

I haven't seen anything specifically for voting on content, but you might be able to use either a "poll" or "thread rating" feature if each content item was in its own thread. These functions are either built-in or available as hacks on various forum software packages.
