Hi Andrea,

Thank you for the positive feedback on the metrics release.

What you are describing sounds connected to two threads of discussion that surface occasionally and we have not made much progress on either:

1. Composite Metrics - metrics that are combining (with weights) other metrics into one. We have some examples in this current release.

2. Maturity Models (or other names) - a collection of composite metrics (simplified). For example this CHAOSScon talk https://youtu.be/NaC2obrH8vg?t=551 (sorry, I was the speaker).

I do think that what you are describing has value and a place in the CHAOSS discussion. :)

Best,
Georg

We agreed to work on metrics as tools to evaluate the success of an open source project but at the same time we agreed to refrain from providing any judgement or comparison of projects.

Eg. based on the metrics in the GMD category, could we process and combine them in order to evaluate a "growth" or "maturity" or "decline" label?
