Actually, a part of administration is also done by committing changes
via Subversion. However, admins of servers (as well as Office staff
should have right to vote by default.

I am also thinking that activity on mailing lists should be measured,
too. At least, it is valuable as any longer post on a talk page. The
same is for blogs aggregated to Planet Wikimedia and Open Wiki Blog
Planet. However, the most of contributors to mailing lists and to the
aggregators are, also, active at the projects.

Involvement in non-Wikimedia, but very close and to Wikimedia useful
projects, like Betawiki and OmegaWiki are -- should be also counted.

While it may look complex, I think that it is possible to make fair
rules which may cover all of the involvement in achieving Wikimedia
