only - the only modification was to add "place holders" for hourly
reports that were missed when LotW and/or the ARRL web site was down.

total number of QSOs processed each week. Since we know exactly the
number of files processed, the only issue is determining the average
number of QSOs per file which is a straight forward problem.
I've been through the analysis yet again and found one error. By not
excluding hourly reports (after the backlog cleared) where the backlog
went over an hour, some logs - often but not always large logs - were
being counted twice. However, after adjusting the calculations to
resolve that oversight there was very little difference in the rate of
reprocessing. Total QSO levels went down 15 to 20% in most weeks but
increased 25% in one. The percentage of new QSOs went up in three
weeks and down in two. The second lowest rate of new QSOs occurs in
the week with the lowest number of total QSOs while the second busiest
week also has the second highest rate of new QSOs. Simply, there is
no apparent correlation between the rate of reprocessing and either
number of logs processed or the average number of QSOs per log.

- I run ACLog... When you hit the "ALL SINCE" button, change the date to
be something about a week prior to the LoTW failure...
I "believe", ACLog got very confused as a result of the fail mode of
LoTW. That corrected a very similar problem for me.
