Hi Lodewijk,
it's not the fisrt time that I am saying that the measures of the
evaluation are able to measure quantities and not qualities.

If the aim of Wikimedia is to improve also the qualities, it's clear the
direction that the movement is taking.

I know that measuring quantities is easier, but it's not an evaluation, are
simple numbers without a clear "strategy".
