In Debian we all love statistics. It is not unusual see people blogging with graphs and stats about several stuff (ie: bugs, active developers), and we have official sites like popcon or this unofficial website bugstats that measures our packaging "karma". Now there is a page in the wiki http://wiki.debian.org/Statistics where put all the related links.
But I still keep thinking there are some more statistics we could gather, like daily number of the packages in the archive, top bugs reporters, monthly number of maintainers, etc. Some numbers would be interesting to see the "health" of the project, and some just for fun.
So, what about create stats.debian.net? The goal would be list statistics places and host different stats. Some of the existing sites could chose move there, and collaborately, people could submit their scripts.

[...] Como comenta Ana Guerrero en el http://planet.debian.org, en Debian siempre ha habido una fijación a tener números y estadísticas, como muchos, yo soy fan también de ver estos datos o gráficas. [...]

Does Lucas Nussbaum’s "Some numbers about Debian’s history" qualify? :) http://www.lucas-nussbaum.net/blog/?p=260

Oh, and an afterthought... http://www.google.com/search?q=how+much+does+debian+cost+site%3Adwheeler.com Should we (volunteers? anyone?! ;) ) :-) invent a running over time (a release-bugs counterpart) graph of "Debian development costs this week"? Smth. like script counting SLOCs & $-s over incoming queue or testing changes?
