At the risk of 'going meta', there are a number of indicators of the
health of Harmony that would be interesting to plot.  Some relate to the
codebase (LOC, test passes, API completeness, etc.) and some relate to
the effectiveness of the community (mailing list activity, jira
turn-around time, number of committers, etc.)

The following paper by Crowston et al. [1] has a list of interesting
measures that you could gather for Harmony.
