It was also discussed in this meeting, after Tim had to leave for another
meeting, that we should be saving absolute results instead of delta results.

In past discussions, it was agreed to only save the delta result to the
UNH-IOL database that drives the dashboard, with the baseline (absolute
result) kept on the respective system (without keeping old absolute
baselines).

Additionally, keeping absolute data in the database could be used to
produce accurate charts of performance over time and better show trends.
However, that will require some agreements to be reached for what data
could be made public, compared to what is available to logged in users
(i.e. seeing their own absolute performance numbers).  At this time, the
only change would be first storing the numbers into the database, with only
UNH-IOL having access to the data. Nothing else with the systems would
change with this first step.

The public view will still remain showing a delta for patches, until we
decide later on, on whether to show these absolute numbers in private or
also in public views.

If there is any issues with going forward with this decision, I'd like this
thread to be a public discussion for said issues. Ideally, we would like to
reach a definite go / no-go on this change for the next team meeting on
February 12. No reply or participation in this thread will be considered as
accepting the proposal to store the absolute numbers in the database.

Thanks.
