Funny you should ask.

Trackability isn't the main goal for PotW, but is a point of interest
for Project of the Month.  The first PotM is in progress now.  We'll
have graphs showing contributions.  For example:



The current Project of the Week (Use Potlatch2 and give feedback) has
ancedotal indications of success; The Potlatch2 developers say they
are getting more feedback.  \o/  Yay!


I think I'm pretty stern on judging the success of PotW and PotM.  For
improvement, I'd like to see more participation on all levels;
- I'd like to see more folks submitting complete projects ready for
- I'd like to see more folks adding PotW/M to their regular editing.
- I'd like to see more discussion and suggestions on the proposals page.

But I know that I can't always have everything that I'd like. ;-)

Things I like about PotW/M:
- I think it is fantastic that some PotW/M get translated into other
- It's great that suggestions from the community lead to Project of the Month.

And it's nice that you are asking.  Thanks.  :-)
