That sounds excellent. I started a small, progressive dashboard mockup
here: http://dashboard.mageia.org/ but it still needs quite some work
(and more data sources to be available through a Web interface).

What would be even better would be to make all/most of these
informations available from a central place (at least in a documented
way) so that consistent mashups can be built with time. You could
start by adding to https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Metrics above resources
you compiled.

It is fine, as long as you relicense this data and its use under a
CC-By-SA license or equivalent. Mageia is intended to be totally
forkable from the very start; so all contributions (code, data, doc,
artwork, etc.) to the project are public and licensed in such a way it
is possible to fork. There's no privacy issue in this.
