Hi everyone,

As some of you know, the OSF staff has been working with Bitergia to 
provide a proof-of-concept dashboard of community activity metrics for 
Kata Containers. This dashboard is now available at:


It currently contains the default set of Bitergia dashboards, so you 
might find some panels more interesting than others. It tracks Git data, 
GitHub activity, and mailing-list activity.

We have the possibility to customize or add panels, so if you see some 
analysis or panel that would be specifically useful for Kata Containers, 
let us know !

Some identities are duplicated (especially across data sources as people 
don't use the same email address in for example git and the ML) -- 
although we did a pass at correcting those, there may be a few persisting.

In the same vein, some affiliations may still be "unknown" -- we are 
trying to see if there would be a way for people to fix that data 
directly, rather than relying on a community manager to do so.

We'll run this proof-of-concept for a year, to confirm that the data is 
useful and accurate before we pursue this further. During this period, 
don't hesitate to report issues or start a discussion about features. 
The mailing-list is a good venue for that, until we set up a more formal 
issue reporting channel (Bitergia is using Gitlab).
