Excellent initiative!

One question that came to my mind is the lower level metrics.
Is there a need to see some rough metrics on the server performance level?
I'm personally interested in those, but is there a wider interest?


P.S. I narrowed my answer to just the community list.

>            * various open source aspects
>            * membership / user accounts
>            * mailing list subscriptions / participation
>            * contributor activity
