This is not straightforward at the moment -- the bar graph on the doc 
wiki is not an image, so it's not very easy to embed. But this can go to 
the wishlist, to be added later.

At present this would need to be done manually every time someone uploads 
the documents, and at times people would forget to update this. So I'd 
rather not add the dates here as long as we have to do it manually. But 
could be done, sure.
