Who’s using bors?

This month’s featured user is how_is, an app that gathers metrics for your GitHub repository. Here’s a report for bors-ng, and here’s one for how_is itself, for example. It’s similar to GitHub’s “Insights”, but it has a few reports that GitHub doesn’t, and it can generate reports retroactively.

Got any suggestions for next month? Post a comment on the January pull request.
