Hi Alexandre ,
Thanks for the mail and metrics suggestions.

My name is Alexandre Moine and I am a french student in computer science.
I am working on fedora as a packager and an ambassador for now 4 years.
I am currently working for an event , and I found very difficult to
find any stats about fedora. On the CommOps wiki page, there is some link
about tools (fedora-stats-tool, gscoc-stats), but they are not very easy to
use for the first, and too focused for the second.
skamath or I can help you set up the tools you need and extract the stats
needed. We usually around in #fedora-commops irc channel. My IRC nick is
I was thinking about a site that will provide all fedora basic-data
on the great fedora apps datagrepper), like number of package added, number
of user, with charts. We can also imagine a tool that will provide more
specific datas/charts (number of wiki edit per day or number of crated iso
by pungi per weeks) on demand.
Infra is currently working on a tool for getting such kinds of stats. It's
called statscache. You can know more about the motivation and how it is
built here . To store these kinds of metrics, you need to build a
statscache plugin first. However, for contributors interested in the final
data, there are plans to have a frontend for such metrics in Fedora
Hubs. However, this is going to take some time and if you need
immediate metrics for your event, I am sure the slides for 'State of
Fedora' talk by mattdm have some great ones. These are the slides from
FOSDEM in Jan 2016 and here is the more recent version from flock in Aug
2016 . If you need any metrics apart from these, dont hesitate to mail
or ping in IRC.
Also, since we are on this topic , pingou had in past created a web-front
end for metrics like you were suggesting. You can view it at
. Unfortunately, it's no longer active.
This wiki page  have good ideas, but it is kind of outdated.
Thanks for pointing out, the page surely needs some love and updates :)
This can help ambassadors, like me now, or even all the part of the
project: to now for example if a service is well used or not, or to see if
a part of the project needs help.
There is here, I think, no huge difficulties. Datagrepper is really easy
to use. It only require "some" website devel and intergration. I'm a not a
professional dev, and I apologize in advance if my words are not wisely ;)
I am talking about a website because they are more friendly, but a great
python tool will be very nice :)
Please tell me what you think about it, and if you have any ideas.
Hope that is helpful,
