atrol The page rendering was broken (maybe since new PHP version on mantisbt.org). Added new line to fix it at end of file.

 ===== Rationale ===== ===== Rationale =====
  
-The summary page could benefit from a list of the most active bugs; for the implementation of this feature several ​metrics were proposed as a measure of activity:+The summary page could benefit from a list of the most active bugs, since active bugs are likely related to topics ​the users and/or the developers are interested in. 
 + 
 +Several ​metrics were proposed as a measure of activity:
  
   - the number of views of the given bug (currently, this data is __not__ available in mantis)   - the number of views of the given bug (currently, this data is __not__ available in mantis)
   - the number of monitors   - the number of monitors
   - the number of bugnotes   - the number of bugnotes
 +  - the number of attachments
 +
 +===== Implementation =====
 +
 +The current implementation leverages the bug_history_table content to score the bugs and build the top ten list; this looks like the easiest way to take into account all of the above metrics (of course excluding bug views)
 +
 +  * Each history entry weights as 1 point
 +  * only open bugs (e.g, with state below the resolved threshold) are listed
 +
 +Of course we could refine the scoring function to give "​better"​ results; for example:
 +
 +  * weights more monitor events
 +  * weight more has_duplicate events
 +  * give negative weight certain events (unmonitor)
 +
 +and/or provide a custom function hook to personalize the scoring function
