I didn't miss it. But because I'm not a Dev, I'm not sure I understood.

Do you mean converting the time of extraction from the repositories to a
linear time?

Wouldn't the values for all repositories be the same if you extract them all
at the same time?

If it's based on the last time they were updated wouldn't the value be the
same if all the repositories were updated at the same time?

This is why I'm suggesting an arbitrary birth date with (at least) a 2 day
difference (see other email to Petr)
