Hi Andrea,

I put Erik on the cc.

Who are in this meeting exactly?

Could you elaborate a bit more on what kind of statistics you would 
like? We can do a lot already, but the most important one is not 
possible directly: Number of image views, we have to fall back to the 
number of views of the articles the images are in. This is a major point 
for GLAM statistics.

Of course Erik is the best person, but Erik is being flooded with all 
kind of requests so he barely has the time to do his actual work :-(
I see only one solution: We need to clone Erik.

While we work on cloning Erik, maybe some of the other WMF stats guys 
has time to help out? We do need clear specifications on what kind of 
statistics we want.
