#11149 Create a script for obtaining number of active users
Closed: Initiative Worthy 22 days ago by zlopez. Opened 4 months ago by zlopez.

Describe what you would like us to do:

It would be nice to have some statistics about active users in Fedora. We are currently looking at this kind of statistics:

For pagure.io and src.fedoraproject.org (separately):

  1. number of users who have logged in to the system at least 5 times in 90 days, per year (count "logged in" as "any activity")
  2. number of users who have created a PR or issue

For bugzilla:

  • number of distinct users who have filed an issue in Fedora or EPEL, by year.

When do you need this to be done by? (YYYY/MM/DD)


I have the bugzilla numbers already, BTW.

And, actually, an adjustment to what the request here is. Rather than a 90 day window, it's per quarter. (Calendar months okay -- exact precision not necessary). What we need is: the count of unique user accounts who have done at least one of these things:

  1. Created a PR
  2. Created an issue.
  3. Logged in at least 5 times

... per quarter.


Also note that this is unrelated (or at least not directly related) to the ongoing "what is a contributor / how do we count contributions" discussion at https://discussion.fedoraproject.org/t/fedora-strategy-2028-what-is-a-contributor-what-is-a-contribution/46775 :)

Thanks for clarification @mattdm :thumbsup:

Don't you want to add also
- made a comment?

Ah, sorry - I can't remove this comment - my hands were faster then my head: if someone wants to comment, he/she has to log in first. Please disregard this comment.

Also, as of 1629IST 13 March 2023, we have around 822 active users and around 99243 available users as found by the aforementioned script.

@t0xic0der Can we close this ticket? It seems that you already have some kind of statistics. I know that this ended up to be much more work than initially though, so closing it as Initiative worthy is probably the correct way.

@zlopez I have been in conversation with @amoloney and @mattdm regarding this to be converted into an initiative, in the wake of the requirements increasing. The proposal can be found here https://pagure.io/cpe/initiatives-proposal/issue/27 and the ARC investigation about the same is currently in progress.

Feel free to close this issue ticket.
