You can't. Thats the point I was making. It is impossible to measure against a
'metric' thats not observable/quantifiable/finite. So Richard asks about
measuring Fedora; can't be done. Commits/day to cvs, package changes, users
logged into systems, bug reported, etc, are measurable. So is the number of
random unrelated emails sent to devel-list per hour!
