Write access has been granted to you for the foss4g metrics sheet.

I'm delighted to hear that you found these past metrics useful, and 
provides some personal validation that the time spend creating it was 
worth it.

I agree with you that this spreadsheet has become quite unwieldy and 
would benefit from a clean up. It would be wonderful if you would like 
to take that task on. All I request is that we don't loose any prior 
information. I think your idea of forking the spreadsheet sounds good - 
even if we copy the old spreadsheet into a branch release (new URL), and 
have your new spreadsheet keep the old URL.

Warm regards, Cameron
