More recently, Frédéric Péters wrote the commit digests:

With statistics. I think statistics are great and is a source of
motivation when we are listed, and it can be automated (like sending a
mail to desktop-devel-list each week).

I'm okay with sending out metrics, but they need to have a purpose.  Basically, what do we do with these metrics and what goal do they drive?

When we did GNOME summaries, we also tried to do some interpretation and some observations as part of the metrics.  Otherwise, they get sent out and they get wholly ignored as noise.  I don't want people people taking the trouble information.

Some things to think about.  Again, I'm happy to mentor people who are interested in doing this as I've been thinking about this for awhile at least from an onboarding perspective.
