are you asking for a summary of our discussion in Valencia or for the
current state of things?
Here's a quick update on the two stats you're mentioning:
- I'm working on replacing client IP stats by implementing stats on
directory requests by transport and IP version (#8786). I got a bit
distracted by the fact that we're currently not counting IPv6
directory requests at all (#18460), but once that's solved, I'll
resume working on the other ticket.
- I asked a metrics team volunteer to look at exit stats and the
possible benefits from gathering them and then forgot about that task.
I'll look at these stats myself this week.
I also added an item to the metrics roadmap, so that we can revisit
this discussion at metrics team meetings:
All the best,
