Here's a proposal I'm excited about:
As it stands I don't really know how long it will be until the beta. How about trying to estimate this?
Or maybe even:
Or maybe with a range so movements in the prediction aren't too volatile:
It would be a lot more informative and exciting to follow and give a good estimate of how long we all have to wait!
It also acts as a target, something to come back and look at. As it stands, the # of comitters is just a figure I'm disconnected from, this more target emphasised approach will make me feel more attached to the proposal I think.
Fabian mentioned that a linear line wouldn't make much sense, especially on new proposals, so how about this new graph comes in when a certain momentum has been reached, and the line of best fit takes acceleration into account?
