Yes, you are right. 4 months. I am sorry about that.

We have been working so hard in developing the product and using it to
create reports and dashboards that I have not found time to reintegrate
all in Allura an continue the development.

Time to review the current status.

1. I have a branch in which I have developed the Integration of
VizgrimoireJS/VizJS 0.2. I need to update all to the current Allura code
and test that all is working.

2. The hard step is how to integrate MetricsGrimoire (MG, Python toola)
(tools which generates the data needed for VizJS to viz). MG should be
installed in Allura node (the easy configuration) and should be started
periodically to gather the data from new projects or update the old

How to program the execution of MG for Allura projects? This is what we
need to define. It could be directly from "crond" but maybe, we ca have
a tighter integration so Allura control the execution. I have research a
bit Allura tasks, but I am not sure it this is the way to go.

Rich, we have continued the development of VizJS and now is more
complete. Let's try to finalize how to integrate everything and continue
to move on to build better dashboards and have richer metrics with more
valuable info!

My plan is to finish 1 and propose something for 2, but any clues about
the best integration strategy will be really appreciated.
