3. Stats and Metrics

The committee discussed the statistics and metrics reported on the RFC 
Series.  Heather Flanagan provided a spreadsheet of the reports that are 
currently generated, and proposed consolidation of several of the 
existing reports.  Joe Hildebrand asked for additional information about 
why certain reports are useful to their audiences, and how much time is 
required to generate each report.  The committee agreed that both of 
those pieces of information would be useful in the discussion about 
consolidating and/or deprecating reports.  Heather agreed to add that 
information to the spreadsheet.  The committee will continue this 
discussion once that information is available.
