All data from GitHub issues would be useful for a developer dashboard.

It's not simple.  Repositories must also include those that are not in
the /sugarlabs/ organisation, such as the Help Activity, and many

Pratul is writing a web application, and likely coding in JavaScript,
so the GitHub REST API https://developer.github.com/v3/ should have
what is needed.  If Pratul has a problem with the API, ask GitHub Help
team or #github IRC channel. The GitHub API is not part of Sugar.

I still don't think a developer dashboard will help Sugar Labs at a
social level, because we have so few developers, but I've no objection
to someone trying it.
