I just made up the description page from the manual. I have a different
layout at work where there are links on the metrics that popup a small
window with the metrics description. I will try to set this ASAP. For now
refer to:

All these metrics are computed with a maximum aggregation mode
The upper limit as well as the aggregation mode need to be tuned with time.
For example I have a preference to set the LOC to total to see the evolution
of LOC, etc...

I can do it insite for Ant without problems but doing it for all Jakarta
projects is definitely not possible. Performing Audit is relatively fast but
metrics takes a huge amount of time (for Ant src/main it requires 40 minutes
on my home Celeron 450).
Sam kindly proposed me to host this at but there are
licensing issues that are in the pipe right now and I hope to have a
positive reply in the next days.

consider it done.
