Comment #4 on issue 1457 by chip...@gmail.com: Add ability to define
metrics and generate reports
We do not keep track of review time. That's actually a difficult thing to
measure. When do you start/stop the clock? Do you keep track based on mouse
movement, with some fuzzy amount of time after movement to account for
reading? You certainly don't want to count all the time on a page, as they
may get up and walk away for a snack or something.
Number of code reviews is simple. It can be queried from the database, and
it'd be easy to extend the API.
Number of lines of code reviewed.. Do you mean the number of lines
commented on? If so, that could also be figured out, as each comment has a
number of lines it spans.
However, we are not focusing on making these statistics readily available
through any formal API in 1.6. The plan right now is to focus on usability
improvements, and features to speed up the code review process.
The goal after 1.6 is to get our extension API branch in, which will form
the 2.0 release. That will make it possible for extensions (such as a
statistics extension) to be built without depending on us including the
entire thing directly in the codebase. The issue with features like
statistics is that everyone wants something slightly different, and that
can lead to feature bloat in the product, so we're using extensions as the
way to solve that problem.
