Right, I didn't mean to distract you from the original goal :) The directory would be very, very cool to have as well. Sticking with the watcher/forker theme, perhaps the overlap between two projects' watchers/forkers (either in raw numbers or as a fraction of the total) might be a way to gauge their relationship?

Can't wait to see what you come up with. Best of luck!

I was imagining using the number of watchers and forkers as a measure of popularity. Looking at overlap based on WHO is watching/forking sounds like a better idea. Thanks for the suggestion.
