Notes
====
- A line in the body of a post is considered to be original if it
does *not* match the regular expression /^\s{0,3}(?:>|:|\S+>|\+\+)/.
- All text after the last cut line (/^-- $/) in the body is
considered to be the author's signature.
- The scanner prefers the Reply-To: header over the From: header
in determining the "real" e-mail address and name.
- Original Content Rating (OCR) is the ratio of the original content
volume to the total body volume.
- When no crossposting has taken place during the period of the stats
people with 0 crossposts will reach the top ten crossposters.
- The stats are generated automatically every Sunday morning by a
Cron script. The script is a modified version of the news-scan
script available on CPAN and runs on a GNU/linux machine with
Leafnode. It can also be used on a Windows machine with Cygwin
and Hamster.
- Please send all comments or requests for copies of the script to
Jonathan Bryce (jonathan at jbryce dot org dot uk).
