Looks great - we could also include the number of followers (or Klout 
score) of the adoptopenjdk Twitter account, and the number of 
contributions to the wiki

Perfect. We could also add number of patches rejected/corrected due to 
quality issues, as I'm sure this stat would help convince the OpenJDK 
committers that Betterrev can help with initial triage :-)

This all looks great, and the number of 'graduates' is going to be a 
stat that we'll all watch with keen interest! :-)

If we're all in agreement with the proposed stats then we should create 
a plan to begin creating a baseline and a methodology for regularly 
updating (and sharing) these metrics.
