github.com/GlusterFS is a guy who's a fan, and does stuff with Gluster.

He's friendly, and gave my user admin/owner status on that org
(github.com/GlusterFS) a while back to show he has no ill intentions.
(just checked, I still have admin there)

If we want to do something in there, we can ask him.  Not really seeing
a benefit of it though over our own main repo. ;)

Yep.  This is definitely the way forward for the Forge, and bits of
code are being developed to make this happen.

Initial code for stats collection was created yesterday:


It's designed to be run daily from cron, collect specific stats, and
then stick them into a SQLite3 database.  The stats it collects are:

  * # of commits since midnight
  * # of GitHub watchers
  * # of GitHub stars
  * # of GitHub forks
  * total # downloads from the releases page for the project

The idea is to have a front "forge" page which lists our
projects, and shows the ones with the most activity.  Pretty
much the same as we have on the front page of the Forge
now... but updated daily using the status from the collection
thing above.

Note - it wouldn't be hard to update this more than daily.

"Pick a time interval" that seems useful, and we can do that.
(hourly maybe)
