Right now, the porcupine graph of tree progress is overly pessimistic. Let's add a knob to make it ignore some missing strings. I'll do that experimental for now, just a hidden parameter so that we can work on the interaction and chat about the right value. I'll also do a static number across time, which won't be totally perfect. Much better would probably be "ignore missing strings for a week" or some other timewindow, but that would require new data, i.e., we had to have hard data on strings added and removed over time. Just a number is simple enough, and might be useful.
(In reply to comment #0) > I'll also do a static number across time Can we make the static number easily changeable in the UI?
http://hg.mozilla.org/l10n/django-site/rev/eef8755d3205 has the initial work. Leaving open and moving to a P3 to figure out a better UE, including "easily changeable". I also added a "hideBad" option, so that we can focus on good, which tweaks black to green, too. Tip: picking a number based on the latest histogram to ignore is a good idea for the graph.
http://hg.mozilla.org/l10n/django-site/rev/d05856f52646 and bug 595536 are good enough, marking FIXED.
