Comment (by karsten):

 Related thought, though this one is slightly more long-term: We might want
 to take the data-processing modules out of the Tor Metrics website code
 base and start a new service for them that produces .csv files as output.

 The advantage would be that we can have a real release process for that
 service whereas we can push Metrics website updates whenever we need to
 make them.  And of course it would become easier for others to run their
 own instances of this service without also having to set up their own
 Metrics website.

 This idea has been on my mind for a while now, and in the old naming
 scheme I would have called this service ''AggregaTor''; but I'm more than
 happy to use a better name.

 If we do this, we should consider doing something similar with data
 specifications as suggested above for Onionoo and CollecTor: the new
 service would have its own page on the Tor Metrics website, which would be
 pretty close to the current page with
 [https://metrics.torproject.org/stats.html pre-aggregated statistics

 The Metrics website code base would then consist of the website contents
 and the graphing engine that consumes .csv files from the new service.
