Freeciv-web now shows graphs with score, population and more, and it can be displayed in the metaserver, in-game and and at end of game.
Please give it a try, and report what you think.

Oooh very nice. Can you see this at any time or only at the end of a game?

Yes, it can be seen at any time, during and after a game. Do you think this is okay?

There is however some bugs in the implementation, for example the scores graphs will not contain information about previous turns if you load a game from a savegame. That would make the implemetation much more complex. If this would be very useful, then Cazfi would be the one to ask kindly. There could be other bugs also.

Nook, your Youtube channel seems to be going quite well now. I like the current X-Com and Civ2 episodes! Let me know when you have any more ideas for Freeciv-web videos!

The information leakage about other players should be at least configurable. This gives out much more than demographics does, and it's sometimes considered cheating.

I agree. We could expose the scorelog variable for configuration in the Freeciv-web settings dialog.

Freeciv-web is already quite liberal with sharing information, for example anyone can observe any games, unless they are password-protected.

As long as it doesn't give out too much information, you could potentially change your strategy if you for instance know the tech level/ military size of your opponents. Having to use a diplomat to establish an embassy to reveal graphs might be an idea if it gives too much info though.
