Re: recording more metrics and doing more data mining about Fedora


Thanks for posting this. Its very promising. As a matter of fact, I know that there are a number of us that are interested in this and certain groups already their own tools to measure certain things. I think it might be beneficial for us to all get on a conf call or figure out some commonly suitable meeting time and forum to get together and discuss this as a whole group.

What do you (or anyone else for tha matter) think?

It's something I would like to see happen, because it will drive more focused goal setting especially in Marketing, but it has implications all over the place.

I'm starting up a project to help everybody in Fedora by combining
statistical (not personal!) data retrieved from FAS, repositories in

possibly get our hands on to produce reports that help us see trends in
the activity of contributors, both new and old.

With this project, we'll be better able to understand the effects of
certain marketing techniques or development on what we can measure as
"activity" within the project. Other advantages may be seen as well.

Now, I'm simply starting this -- I don't have any shiny graphs to show
you just yet. But what I do need people to do is let me know what sort
of statistics would help them with what they do. It is also beneficial
to include things that we are already getting statistics on, or that we
previously received statistics for, so that these can all be integrated
into the same system.

Here's where to submit your ideas:

I'll be mostly AFK until the next weekend is over, so please surprise me
with your ideas :)  If you have any questions, please get in touch with
