Reading a magazine, I was confronted with scrapy »an open source and collaborative framework for extracting the data you need from websites. In a fast, simple, yet extensible way.« The framework is written in python and easy to use. You can persist the information in multiple output formats like xml, json, csv and some more. That makes it easy to fetch structured information like TYPO3 Changelog. Also I had highcharts bookmarked for some years now. The interest in how many changes were introduced in each TYPO3 Version, in combination with the type of change, like breaking change or feature, were the missing idea to put everything together.
