Nice ones, Monty, thanks. Do you think this is a report worth seeing at
regular intervals, at each milestone for example and at release time?

Not one single number has meanings by itself but only acquires a meaning
inside a story. If you look at count of commits together with the number
of bugs closed over time, so you can see trends, for example, you may
have an idea of how much effort goes into stabilization vs new features.
Looking at commits and lines of code added/removed can also help
understand where the development effort is going. Or at least the
numbers will seem to tell something and force you to want to dive deeper.

Yes, we've hired them also to get a full self service dashboard updated
regularly (daily). It will go together with the Insights provided by
wikidsmart on the OpenStack Community Activity Board. Stay tuned for an
announcement early next week, with a link to the beta site and add this
session to your calendar while you're at it:

Thanks for all the work, Mark. Git-dm has been a source of data also for
Bitergia, to double-check and reconciliate people-company affiliation
while the Foundation improves its membership database.
