Hi Friedrich,

Great, thanks for your work on this, is there just going to be the one
feed for all activity across the OKF.

I had an idea for the dashboard, but I have no idea how it would work.
Something to quantify mailing list activity (e.g. visualisation /
message count over time) this would help us see at a glance:

a) which new mailing lists (e.g. new regional ones) are taking off and
we should pay particular attention to
b) which are being abandoned and we need to inject some additional
effort to / possibly deprecate.

Just a thought, maybe you were thinking that anyway!
