Implementing export to that format would be quite easy. There are some
fields in the template, that are not that trivial to understand, e.g.
DC type or relation between max depth and depth. But then again, the
existing data suggests that we can leave blanks as well.

The newest data I saw on the site was from 2012, and I did not see how
to upload new logs. The news article, on the other hand, states that
they have collected 3 times more data than the web site shows. So is
this project alive or not?
