I am interested in quantifying and analyzing data generated by the Fedora Project as a way to measure the health of the Fedora community. This idea is directly connected to existing efforts to do the same, such as statistics++.

As a way to learn-as-we-go and get myself a useful set of data about the health of the Fedora community, I'm going to focus on a few broad strokes of information. These broad strokes potentially comprise a number of granular study points - places to look, and metrics to pull on a regular basis.

The processes here - the what and how - are going to change over time, in response to whatever happens.

Keywords are in this specific order so the first term sets the Search Volume Index. The first time is the one we are comparing against, presumably it is going to be the common or generic base. For example, compare "Linux, Fedora" sets Linux as 1.0, and the term Fedora scores based against that (either higher or lower.)

Keywords as comparisons:

Method

  1. Look at each link for current score.
  2. On the trend page, look for Export this page as a CSV file > CSV with fixed scaling
    • Use this to get specific numbers for previous points in time

Search relevance

  • Evolve a set of parameters for search engine metrics
    • Can we drive down to see what is being done with Fedora? I.e., more than just talked about, how is it used?
