I did make a little python stats script that can display the total
number of passers/crashers per mimetype, that is parsed to csv format.
Easy to open using LibreOffice (of course ;-) ) and do some
calculations/visualization on it. I guess that's already a good starting
point for stats, but sadly I don't have time to develop it any further
next month or so (exams, master thesis, ...).

True. For a non-developer, but QA volunteer, I am only interested in the
numbers. (trend per mimetype, and general trend).

Kind regards,
