Looks like an awesome pitch. So far you are using lava to store your
local results and then render them in the dashboard, right?

No, that's great and having a great report for such things is exactly
what we are looking for. Of course, later with automated builds for
toolchain tip branches and lava runs to validate and get benchmark

IIRC, organizing the dashboard around teams and boards and/or
products/baselines was discussed at connect and makes sense imo.
My take though is that a team dashboard is basically putting multiple
views on a single page, so starting with one detailed view (toolchain
benchmarking) sounds fine.

I agree. For navigation hierarchy it makes sense to think about what
areas would have such view. I would think this view should be
accessible from an Android, Toolchain WG and Benchmarking area. (or
only one of those to start).

I have no direct say on that, but I am certainly happy if blueprints
for such cool views get scheduled. So +1 from me.
