I spent some time on this and have something to share:

Commercial graph browser linkurio.us seeded with contents of people.json.

http://72.182.111.65:3000/workspace/3

(Export attached)

Everyone and every project in that file is connected and searchable,
but just the handful already on this thread are pre-rendered in this
workspace.

I'll keep this online for a few days for review by this group, but
will probably take it down shortly or put it behind auth. If you get
an auth dialog, email me directly.

Source code used:

https://github.com/steveblackmon/streams-apache

The streams-persist-graph functionality of incubator-streams (which
this uses) allows for graphs with arbitrary vertex types, edge types,
and vertex/edge properties to be generated (in batch or real-time)
from activitystrea.ms documents.  Basically an actor or object is
written as a vertex, and verbs become edges connecting two vertices.
Multiple writes can be used against the same graph, and so long as the
identifiers used are consistent, the vertices, edges, and properties
will 'stack'.

This is just one aspect of the larger discussion, but I think having
an searchable, exploratory view of the ecosystem of people and
projects that comprise Apache similar to this would be useful, and
didn't mind spending an evening taking a shot.
