Q1 2011 OpenStack Community Snapshot

At the end of 2010, I posted a community snapshot blog (http://www.openstack.org/blog/2011/01/q4-2010-openstack-community-snapshot/) that provided a variety of community health data-points. Seeing measurements on a quarterly basis provides insight to the health and growth of our community. If you have any ideas for other metrics to monitor, please contact me at [email protected].
