Among others, yes. It depends on several things.

But let me continue in a different way then. For each major step:
 * how could I get/gather/query those values? I guess for most of
these, we'd need to setup a service to check and publish these, but to
start easy, what would be already available?
 * what useful metrics are missing (and same question as above)?
 * what metrics are useless (and why)?

For instance, using a HTTP GET to query, let me focus on these:
 * buildsystem: what values could I get already?
 * source packages: where could I get the number of packages, the size
of the whole thing? orphan status will come out maintdb which is
mostly ready; open bugs would come from Bugzilla or a proxy service;
what about rpmlint reports?
 * compiled packages: where/how could I get repository size, number of
packages? hdlist status? signatures status? dependencies?

That would be a start, both to push some live data into this prototype
(querying all values every two hours for instance, and keeping track
of them) and to start thinking of setting up additional
