Hopefully the attached is what you want.

usage: [options] jsonPath csvOpath

GnuCash Stats for Cristian Marchi

positional arguments:
  jsonPath    Pathname of the directory containing all the json files
              containing stats.
  csvOpath    Pathname of csv file to create

optional arguments:
  -h, --help  show this help message and exit

I used the bash file you supplied to download all the json files into a
directory.  I CD'ed to this directory and ran command line: ./ stats1.csv

This produced the stats1.csv file that is attached.

Note:  I sort the columns into ascending order first by major release
level then by minor release level, then by bug fix level, treating all
release levels as integers.

I sort the rows into ascending date order.  I allow each json file to
contain a different set of dates.
