    33**What is the problem that this is intended to solve?**
    44
    5 Currently a plugin author don't really know how many of his language packs are update to the latest version. Unless he manually extracts the data from the language packs list - counting them one by one.

    9 With this data, plugin authors can decide whether to focus resources on translations. For example if over 95% of my language packs are updated to the latest version I will do nothing, but if only 40% of the language packs are updated to the latest version I will spend time translating my plugin or hire someone to do that.

    1313Insights is the first step for better decision making. I'm sorry to say, but the language pack list is a useless list of raw data. A single pie chart provides a better visual representation of the data.

    15 If you want to allow the plugin author do something on the page, we can replace the list with a table with sortable columns. It will be much easier to detect language packs for older version.
