I'm not sure what is "not moral" about it.  The main goal is to get
separation from our less active committers.  Right now the proposed new
team page is unfair in that, as long as you took the time to post a
picture you get more prominence regardless of how active you have been.

You're right that it is inaccurate, so maybe instead of an absolute
ranking, maybe two buckets "recently active" and "haven't heard from in a
while".  FWIW, the number of points I have on the Adobe forums vs someone
else is also inaccurate since it relies on someone awarding points which
they don't always do, but nobody seems to claim that there shouldn't be a
point system.

After sleeping on the idea, I agree that Piotr doesn't need to do
something like this now, but I'm interested in why Om says it is a lot of
work.  This seems like a classic Flex use case to me.  Is the main issue
that there aren't public web services available to get the data we need?
Because if we can get the data legally (even by screen scraping if not
prohibited), I think it would be fun to see if we can hook a FlexJS SWF up
to the data, then cross-compile it, get it to work and have a working
FlexJS app on our site.

Of course, I may be too optimistic hereŠ
