[Haskell-cafe] Suggestions for an empirical master thesis

Hi, everyone!

I'm looking for a master thesis topic that is empirical in nature (like, 
statistics, hypothesis testing, etc.).

The work could involve analyzing either package metadata (Cabal 
information), code (AST), and/or data from some other source, possibly 
comparing similar data from some non-Haskell domain.

As an example, one idea that was suggested to me was to look at usage 
aggregation, or like, how much of a given package another package is 
actually using (which could be relevant in any orphan-instance discussion).

 From an academic standpoint, it would be good to pick a metric that can 
be validated in some way.

Thank you!
