Similarly, looking through the code that generates that website's data
structures is a good idea.

  https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/comdev/projects.apache.org/
  https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/comdev/reporter.apache.org/

Note that the reporter tool takes many of the same bits of data, but
then produces commiter-private reports about each project's metrics; so
some of the code (or data sources) you won't necessarily be authorized
to access unless you're a committer on a specific project.
