Health Metrics

We monitor and try to improve these metrics, as proxies for overall project health.

  • Publication frequency: at least 2x per calendar month.
  • Stories per issue: at least 8-10 per issue
  • Contributors: at least 3-4 per issue
  • Active contributors, have contributed in the last few months and will contribute again: at least 10
  • Subscribers: at least 20, around half paying
  • Stewards: at least 3
  • Editors: at least 2

We are currently in prototype phase, so the metrics are in flux, but our goal is to reach about 50% health for the metrics concerning number of people involved before moving to production phase.
