It is probably not hard to create a dashboard to scrape or aggregate issues from bug trackers in various free software projects and assemble them into some kind of dashboard or heat map to identify the pinch-points for widespread OpenPOWER use.

Scraping the data is rather easy, most bug trackers have at least one well known API like RSS or iCalendar.

Identifying which issues relate to OpenPOWER depends on how diligent people are in tagging their bugs.

Deciding how to prioritize the issues on a dashboard or heat map may be more contentious as different people have different perspectives about which issues are important.
