At the CHAOSS level, we have not fully worked out how composite metrics will be expressed. This metric is a trailblazer in that regard. I also suggest postponing it until the next release to make sure we have the source metrics in place and can think about how to represent composite metrics.

Perhaps the v-index is another potential measure: https://opensource.com/article/18/5/metrics-project-success
