A lightweight frontend to the Piwik web analytics system, to provide a simple system to provide web statistics to Ubuland users.
There are very few web hosting systems that give a simple web analytics system. Implementing this will give us a good advantage to 'competitors' or non-believers.
Jono runs a small blog, he want to know how many people visit his website, but doesnt want to have to install a heavyweight stats package on his limited webspace.
The system will be implmented in two parts: A wrapper round Piwik's API (a simple class that can be easily called from other parts of the website) and a frontend, which will be integrated into the UCP (and perhaps ACP).
The UCP will need to be changed to link to a Piwik page which will show simple stats. No other sections of code will need to be changed (the rest will be written from scratch)
This should hopefully be written by alpha-three and should definately be implemented by beta-one.
The wrapper needs to be written first, then the web frontend written on top of that.
