Why should we? I think this is an example of what Jörg tried to explain
when he said the a FOSS project doesn't need to behave like a company.

The ambassadors project is not listed on the stock exchange. The numbers
are honest, we should not manipulate them. We don't need to justify them
to our boss or our stakeholders. The are only needed for internal use
and all people in the project know that the process has changed in June.

>> If we interact with people outside the community, then yes we do need to have some sort of metrics that reflect what we do. Those should, of course, be honest, but also precise. Not just a round about figure. The reason being legitimacy. This is one of the largest gauge for an organization which produces knowledge as an output. In simple words, these figures can be used for external purposes. And why not? The resources are already there (in this case)
