            Bug ID: 60074
           Summary: MediaWiki.org stats should also consider discussion
           Product: Analytics
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
               URL: http://korma.wmflabs.org/browser/mediawiki.html
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Tech community metrics
          Assignee: wikibugs-l@lists.wikimedia.org

As discussed on analytics list, the thing behind
http://korma.wmflabs.org/browser/mediawiki.html will be useful in general if it
manages to apply the standard definitions for content namespaces etc. 

However, for MediaWiki.org specifically, what we really lack in
stats.wikimedia.org is a measure of discussion activity, specifically namespace
1. MediaWiki.org will be successful if it hosts vibrant discussion involving
all the relevant stakeholders of MediaWiki development, but the current graphs
is useless in monitoring that.

For instance:
* top editor for last month is MegaAlex, who did a lot of work on translations
for [[mw:GCI]], but he made more than 1971 edits (and Vldandrew made much more
than 132): probably help pages are not being counted here;
* the bug 59815 fiasco was successful in attracting a lot of discussion from
new people on the wiki:
http://vs.aka-online.de/cgi-bin/wppagehiststat.pl?lang=www.mediawiki&page=Talk%3ATypography+refresh
but this won't show anywhere in the graph, while it would be very evident in a
ZeitGeist which happened to include n1.
