I think it could be limited to two years by default.

Hi,

I was annoyed by the timescale on those graphs, so I gave it a try. The
results are in http://qa.debian.org/~lucas/dograph/

First, dograph.diff simply implements the proposal: limit the timescale
to two years. Result can be seen in graph.png.

But then, I made some other changes in dograph-better.diff:
- I generate three graphs, for:
  + overall graph
  + last 2 years
  + last 6 months
- I added titles, because I always have to think for a while before
  understanding the meaning of the curves
Results can be seen in graph-*.png.
Ideally, you would display the 2-year graph by default, and add links
for the two other graphs.

Something else that could be changed is the size of the graph: 640x480
is quite small. You could change that by switching from:
   set terminal png
to:
   set terminal png size 800,600

IMHO it would be great if there was a "since last release" graph, either
instead of in addition to the 2-year graph.

And once that is implemented, people will want to look at the graph of
former release cycles, or compare them to the current one...

Maybe something could be done to improve current look of the graph?
Many graphs to choose from with different timescales would be nice.

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Hi,

Since the patch from lucas has disappeared, please find attached another take
on this issue.

The first patch adds two new graphs: graph-month.png graphs the last month in
RC bugs, and graph-release graphs the RC bugs since the last release.

The second patch replaces the default graph with the -release one, and adds a
link to the two other graphs to the page.

Cheers,

Thanks for this patch; I'll apply it shortly.

Something the junk advertisers don't seem to understand: we live in an
information super-saturated world. If I don't want to buy something,
no amount of shouting or propagandizing will budge me; all it will do
is get me annoyed. On the other hand, if I have a need for your
product, I can seek it out in an eyeblink.
