Mozilla Contributor Analysis Project (Joint MoCo & MoFo)

I’m  back at the screen after a week of paternity leave, and I’ll be working part-time for next two weeks while we settle in to the new family routine at home.

Trendlines and Stacking Logs

TL;DR Our MoFo dashboards now have trendlines based on known activity to date The recent uptick in activity is partly new contributors, and partly new recognition of existing contributors (all of which is good, but some of which is misleading for the trendline in the short term) Below is a rambling analogy for thinking about… Continue reading Trendlines and Stacking Logs

Contributors counting… contributors?

We now have a reasonably organized Mozilla Foundation Metrics Wiki Hub Page Thing. While my priority to date this year has been working out how MoFo teams count their contributors, I thought I should also take the time to open up this metrics work in a way that contributors can get involved, if that’s what… Continue reading Contributors counting… contributors?

A quick update on the interim contributor dashboard

I’ve just updated the main wiki page tracking our contributor dashboard project, so I won’t repeat everything here.
