Roadmap

February had us almost complete the next major data additiion. We expect this work to be completed in March and be revealed in the next Release Notes.

We have the following plans for 2024:

  • Continue to expand the game statistics data in the database.
  • Display the statistics available in more places (season week-by-week, team pages, league page, player pages).
  • Develop better tools for contributors to see, question, collaborate and correct data in the database.
  • Continue expanding player data prior to 1930 (IRFU) and 1936 (pre-WIFU Unions).
