- Target version set to Future release
I think our minimum requirements are:
1. Must be FLOSS
2. Must be self-hosted
3. Must provide API so that we can provide user-specific data
My initial impression is that Piwik is more widely used and under more active development. It also has a popular WordPress plugin that we could probably use as a starting place for Dashboard integration on the Commons: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-piwik/
It'd be nice to get a preliminary review of Piwik from Valerie to see if she thinks it'd be sufficient for our purposes. If she says that it's missing critical functionality, then it may be a non-starter.

I came across this ticket while I was cleaning up the Future Release milestone the other day. The momentum behind removing the StatPress plugin in #10722 made me think of this ticket.
FWIW, Piwik is now Matomo - https://matomo.org/blog/2018/01/piwik-is-now-matomo/
