I am glad to hear it is getting more and more popular!

For now I have no plans (and not much time) about that, as I have been
waiting to see how LTS support progresses, and to which tool it converges.

Having said that, I was just talking with one of the upstream developers
and he told me that since 2.0, remote LTS is not really that important
anymore, as the new storage engine can handle well label/timeseries
churn, can do reliable backups, and it can grow as much as needed.

Yeah, me too. I hope to be able to start working on it soon, but it is
not going to be trivial with the heaps of javascript dependencies it has.
