But it's free, and you don't have to do it. And if it's hard, a student just spends more time on it. If it's hard, the codeweaver guys will just bail.

You can't really say it will take years because you don't know the scope of the effort. It is unknown at this time.


copdeweaver completeing the job will be based soley on the financial disposition of cost vrs effort.

Demographics data such as website stats, number of downloads of releases/nightlies, and number of registered users could give you some ammunition to make your pitch. It is not an exact science, but it can help you make a more compelling case.

When I was the Haiku website admin, I remember once releasing comprehensive stat reports for everyone to see. For example:

www.haiku-os.org/blog/koki/2008-04-04/ha...ats_and_other_trivia

I don't know if there is this sort of data now available, but if you asked for it, you may be able to get the admins to release it.

This is interesting information that shows general trends over extended periods of time, as well as the impact that specific events/milestones have at any given point in time (for example, when you make a release, a news post, participation in GSOC, etc.).
