I've been advocating resharper adoption to the senior management of our company for sometime now and adoption rates have been steadily increasing. We have over forty .NET developers at present and the number is steadily increasing. Most are now equiped with R#. However a new project has been allocated recently requiring a significant number new licenses to be acquired. However in order to justify the allocation I have been asked to verify the return on investment we have received with our current adoption of the tool.
This is a difficult prospect without tooling as you might imagine. Is there by any chance any tooling that might assist with answering this question? It would be nice, for example, to able to determine a breakdown of green status files versus red and yellow status files within any open solutions at any point and time. The ability to drill down to any particularly low quality solution would be nice help for enforcing developer compliance with quality standards too. In fact there's a whole suite of metadata about my developers habits I'd like to be able to snoop on in realtime with resharper and possibly track the quality history of their created files over time.
I think a tool like this would make a nice companion product actually.
