Like with most statistical data I mostly see the figures being used to give statements on quantity - top poster, number of threads etc. Do you think it would be possible to also make some statements on quality?
The metrics will primarily extract the activity of a mailing list and its users.
It is possible to emphasize on the quality of the posts but i think this is a different app (but it interacts with the Metrics one). If the users were able to rank the posts through the archiver it wouldn't be hard to indicate one user's offering to his community. This looks like the first idea on this page 1.
P.S. Do you also plan to deliver a tool that analyzes a mailing list archive in order to gather your statistical data? Having the statistical data might be a good reason for people to upgrade their MMx installation to MM3.
Yes, there will be a special Generate button in case of an existing archive or in case of a system crash.
