Re: [DISCUSSION] Tracking & Visualizing various metrics of the Beam community

Thanks Udi, I am working on spinning up a test instance.

These tables look very cool!

I certainly don't object to using tools made by another organization. The only issue might be compatibility with our process.

From my understanding of the Kubernetes review process, they use Github's tagging feature to specify PR statuses such as LGTM and approval.
I'm not sure that statistics such as pr-time-to-approve-and-merge would be captured at all on apache/beam since we don't use these tags.

I would definitely like to see how useful this tool is regardless, and since it doesn't seem to require any special permissions it should be simple to set up a test instance.

tl;dr - is there any objections to trying out DevStats tool created by CNCF?

Continuing the discussion about improving Beam code review, I am looking into visualizing various helpful Beam community metrics such as code velocity, reviewer load, and new contributor's engagement.

So far, I found DevStats, an open source (github) dashboarding tool used by Kubernetes, seems to provide almost everything we need. For example, they have dashboards for metrics such as:
It would be really cool if we can try it out for Beam. I don't have much experience using open source projects. From what I understand: DevStats is developed by CNCF and they manage their incubator projects' dashboard. Since Beam is not part of the CNCF, in order to use DevStats, we have to fork the project and maintain it ourselves.

1. What do you think about using DevStats for Beam? Do you know how it is usually done?
2. If you are not sure about DevStats, do you know any other tool which could help us track & visualize Beam metrics?

Thanks, Huygaa
