Hi Mike,

Thanks for your suggestions.

I'm not quite sure if I understand this correctly.  There are a number of
RFC's (2330, 2779...) discussing what and how we measure things.  These
metrics have been implemented by us.  I don't think that a description of
a specific implementation of a group of RFC's is worth another RFC.

That said, I think it would be a good idea to publish a paper on the
project that can be referred to in the near future.  My requirements for a
medium would be a well-known publication, preferably one with a peer
review procedure. Any suggestions which journal might be appropriate for

If you (or anybody else) have specific ideas or just a list of things that
you want to know and should be in the TTM data, can you put them on a
slide so that we have some starting point for a discussion?

I'm not sure what you mean here.  I think a metric should apply to a
quantitity, then be measured for all sites, not be site specific.

Nice idea though, Regards,
