A bit orthogonal to the thread... but since you asked ;)
I find forks to be a far superior metric of a project's success at building a community, interest in the project, and maintaining a long-running project. Forks indicate individual or corporate developer interest. Some percentage of forks result in PRs from said forker. This ratio is easy to measure at the project level via the github timeline or the google bigquery data export to github. This ratio could be used to objectively measure the success of a project (while stars are highly subjective in nature and there is an open market for star purchases). Gaming forks would be more involved...
Would be helpful if github provided this information in the form of "community health" on their dashboards.
The PR LGTM (although I don't represent netdata) and is much more diplomatic than a public complaint or involving attorneys/etc :). Thanks for protecting the CNCF.
