(that's a necessary predecessor, I think, of being able to create graphs
that include private WMF-only data). And we need to play with dygraph

Erik Zachte, in creating his report card, was doing some data
post-processing that Andrew, David, and Diederik hadn't known about, and

configuration for all wikis. Diederik will meet up with Ryan Lane about
