As SPLAT Engineer I would like to study if we can collect insights from repositories that is related to cloud-providers (OCP and SIG-Cloud), so our engineers could take advantage with those data to help to understand contributions from our public repos, follow cloud-provider changes on upstream, and so on.
Recently we are having a few discussions on topics like: how to follow upstream projects ( card SPLAT-115 ), how long some (simple) changes takes to be merged (it can impact in free contributions engagement), projects like non-FF (feature freeze) and OKD. This data could help to take have a overview and help on decisions looking our current data.
The main idea is to collect data from Github API from a collection of repositories from both our product (core/cloud components) and dependencies (upstream), and create a few reports.
One mvp can be found here:
- SPLAT team to track changes on upstream of SIG-Cloud
- OCP engineers to understand where comes from the contributors on projects owned by component, and can extract other insights like how long to PRs being closed/merged, etc
*Nice to have:*
- Basic report with a collection of repositories related to Cloud-providers (Sig-Cloud) and Core from OCP.
- Create new cards if the data makes sense (record a demo, etc)
