Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.

re: Grafana (i'm the author of the linked issue) - i'm quite excited, i do think there's a world of possibilities here.
Two-way sync with a git repo is one possible path, and we've talked a lot internally at GL about how to best support it. My sense is that we can do it with relatively little friction and likely will - but if you're just syncing with a git repo, there's still a lot of arbitrary, opaque repo layout decisions that still have to be made (how do you map a filesystem position for a dashboard to a position in Grafana? In a way that places the dashboards next to the systems they're intended to observe? With many teams? With many Grafana instances?) which induce new kinds of friction at scale.
Fortunately - and not mutually exclusively with the above - by building the system for schema in CUE, we've made a composable thing that we can make into larger systems. That's what we're starting to do with Polly: https://github.com/pollypkg/polly
Conveniently, my parts of a Grafanaconline talk tomorrow discusses both of these https://grafana.com/go/grafanaconline/2021/dashboards-as-cod... :D

There are certainly faster alternatives out there (mgmt comes to mind) but then, they're not Ansible.

UIs Are Streaming Dags

I didn't watch this video, but https://github.com/purpleidea/mgmt/ has a core concept of streams of DAG's since the beginning. I came up with the idea, but if there's a greater commons discussing these kind of algorithms, I'd be interested for more people to get involved!

An Open Letter from the CEO of Puppet: Puppet and Perforce
3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 11 Apr 2022
This is a weird "open letter" but okay.
I feel like Puppet, for whatever reason, has lost out on things and Ansible won, which is quite unfortunate as Ansible is just not as good as Puppet. I wonder if Preforce will be able to revive the interest in Puppet.
Anyway, if someone plans to move away from Puppet (I imagine someone will, because someone always disagrees with a buyout), I've recently found mgmt which has Puppet-lang compatibility. A big plus (to me anyway) is that it's not Ruby based, and is instead written in Go.
I have this idea. Thoughts?

I once saw a talk of the creator of cfg mgmt. It is a real time configuration management tool. I've never used it, but I found the demo's impressive. https://github.com/purpleidea/mgmt/
