I think we should first agree on what we actually need.

A first level would be to extract the data about changes and reviews 
from Gerrit into a query-able system so that we don't have everyone 
hammering Gerrit with individual stats queries. Then people can share 
their "insights scripts" and run them on the same official data.

A second level would be to come up with some common definition of "basic 
insight" and produce that data for all teams. Personally I think the 
first level would already give us a lot more confidence and consistency 
in the numbers we produce.

As an aside, the OSF has been driving a proof-of-concept experiment to 
use Bitergia tooling (now ELK-based) for Kata Containers and StarlingX, 
which we could extend to OpenStack and all other OSF projects if successful.

Historically we dropped the old Bitergia tooling because it was falling 
short with OpenStack complexity (groups of repositories per project 
team) and release-timeframe data, and its visualization capabilities 
were limited. But the new version is much better-looking and flexible, 
so it might be a solution in the long term.
