Regarding GrimoireLab, Over the last week, the most activity in GrimoireLab was related to improve KingArthur, the retrieval data scheduler. Version 0.1.16 of this component was released which includes several features: user-defined queues to run tasks, tasks lifetimes, custom event handlers and a better REST API to get information about tasks and jobs. Among other activity in GrimoireLab, some critical bugs were fixed, especially the ones related to GitLab merge request retrieval [perceval/#53] and Jira analysis [grimoire-elk/#656].
The candidate metric comment period is coming to an end very soon. Thanks for the discussion and comments. The latest push of work has been on standardizing (or at least creating consistency) in the candidate metric headings. May not sound terribly exciting but it’s good work.
We are excited to announce the two keynotes for CHAOSScon NA in August.

More information, including titles and the full schedule will follow very shortly.
Regarding Augur, there were many small bugs that were run into while running the GitHub worker and encountering rare cases. The Augur team updated the worker to handle all these cases that they ran into and the worker is nearly running perfectly smooth. They have changed the way they create GitHub API requests to include user authorization. Other changes were GitHub made to the worker in order to query issues of all states (open and closed), and of all the pages available (by default, the GitHub API only returns the first page of issues).
Things are rolling with this year’s Google Summer of Code. Make sure to check out (and comment on!) the work that the students are doing. You can track what they are up to on their blogs:

We have a new release of GrimoireLab, 18.09-02, corresponding to grimoirelab-0.1.2 (the main Python package).
This release includes full support Mattermost and GoogleHits, some improvements in the Kibiter UI and panels, some bug fixes and minor new features.
The corresponding packages have been uploaded to pypi (so they’re installable with pip). I’ve tested most of the examples in the GrimoireLab Tutorial with this new release, and everything seems to work. Please, report any problem you may find.
As usual, this release of pypi packages was generated with docker containers, to ensure platform independence. You can install all the packages just with:
$ pip install grimoirelab
Remember that now we also have a new grimoirelab package, that pulls all the Python packages for the release. So, installation is easier, and traceability too: for knowing the GrimoireLab release, just run
$ grimoirelab -v
The tag you get (0.1.2 in this case) corresponds to a certain release file (18.09-02 in this case), and specific commits and Python package versions.
We have also produced four Docker images available in DockerHub, all of them with the tags :18.09-02 and :latest. You can pull and run them straight away:
- grimoirelab/factory: for creating the Python packages
- grimoirelab/installed: with GrimoireLab installed
- grimoirelab/full: grimoirelab/installed plus services needed to produce a dashboard, by default produces a dashboard of the CHAOSS project.
- grimoirelab/secured: grimoirelab/full plus access control and SSL for access to Kibiter
If you want to use or help to debug the containers, have a look at the docker directory in the chaoss/grimoirelab repository.
The list of new stuff is in the NEWS file (check all changes since 18.08-01, which was the latest release with packages in pypi).
