How to get access to Wikimedia Bitergia API

Ok. I am Raymond, one of wikimedia selected interns for outreachy round 20, I am contributing to wikiContrib tool. Because of the number of platforms we plan on collecting data from, we sense that latency might become a problem (I explained the problem in details in my proposal here ) . One way to avoid this problem is to use bitergia API, but it came to my knowledge that it requires authorization which we don’t currently have. I want to know if it is possible to get access to this API, and if so, how should I proceed?

This might be a topic for the talk page of https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Community_metrics ? I don’t think we can easily hand out API access because of some private data in there, though.
