In principle, yes.
If you have a better explanation of what you mean by “activity
problems” and what you think the correlation is with mailing list
posting, that would help the discussion.
I started with comparing:
Here the difference is very clear and the conclusion that Debian Junior
needs definitely help. Other list show similar decreasing or increasing
I compared the graphs to what we currently have
and in my opinion the later graph does tell less than the above. I tried
to add a feature to estimate the use of a mailing list. Perhaps you
like another example: Please compare:
which graph shows more clearly that debian-enterprise list has a problem?
I admit that not in all cases my interpretation was correct but
if some people find arguments that I'm wrong and there is no
problem I'm more happy as if I would have stayed silent if there
is a problem on another list. Moreover sometimes it turned out
that a list is driven by a strong team. It makes sense to also
express this fact and I did so (hopefully).
