Re: [ee4j-pmc] Project "Report" Page

I would expect that the "experimental" label is a pretty clear indication that I'm not sure. ;-)

If you click on a project header, the page will focus on an individual project (e.g. Grizzly). I'll see what I can do about a table of contents and some sort of filter/sort functionality.
A TOC with just the links to the "focus" pages would help.

I have an older experiment that displays the information in a table. You can sort.

The table is nice, but it contains too much information.  I'd like to be able to see the key status on a single page, on a single screen, without having to scroll horizontally.  Something that allows me to monitor the "health" of the projects.  (I understand that vertical scrolling is inevitable given the number of projects, but ideally there would be some attribute you could sort on that would bring the "interesting" projects to the top.)

If you want to over-engineer this, you could add the ability to hide columns so I would see only the columns that I consider interesting.

Again, keep in mind that these pages are currently just experiments to see how we might visualize some of the data that we have available.
Understood, and that's why I'm providing this feedback!  Hopefully others will provide feedback as well.

Adding information about the latest release, release cadence, etc. might be an interesting addition.

The oldest download bit is not actually implemented yet. My intention is to grab the earliest file creation date from the project's directory on

The incubation mailing list link sounded like a good idea when it was pitched to me, but I'm thinking that I agree. See Bug 531809.

Are you sure you want these all on a single page as the list gets long?  At the very least it would help to have a table of contents at the top.

It might also be nice to consolidate some of this information into a single screen "dashboard" table/spreadsheet that shows some of the key statistics for all projects.  If only I knew which statistics are "key"...  :-)  Extra credit if I can sort/filter on columns in the table.

Greetings PMC Members.

FYI, I've been working on a page that provides a summary of information about our open source projects. The work is preliminary and is subject to change.

For now, the page is only accessible to committers and you must be logged into the site in order to view it.
