Subject Project Visualization Tool...
Date Thu, 16 Apr 2015 21:12:17 GMT
At ApacheCon, we discussed creating a project visualization tool to
help folks navigation the ever-growing number of projects we have here
at the ASF.  The idea would be to allow folks to see some form of "tag
cloud" or something (with the tags being the projects themselves), but
the cloud is interactive, allowing filtering by various dimensions
(size of project, age, relationships to other projects, programming
language, etc.).

We already have a new projects page in the works:

which displays quite a bit of information.  Where do we get that
information?  Do folks have any other ideas about different ways of
browsing/exploring the projects?  One idea we have is to lean on
TinkerPop (currently incubating) to load the data into a graph
structure to allow the data to be easily manipulated (the "gremlin"
language allows you to traverse the graph in this way very easily).
