Timing diagram for dates overlapping year end, following year stops working properly

Hi, I want to show the release dates/versions of various bits of software. We started late last year, so very quickly we are in "this" year.

Firstly, it shows a box around "last year" with some grey "levels" that aren't needed (nor is the box). But then every transition beyond the end of 2019 isn't shown. The value of the state at the time is shown, but no X where the states flip. I tried adding some labels and arrows and they all work. But not the state changes.

Also, I think it is trying to be clever and because I'm using specific days, the normal factoring doesn't work and I need to specify a scale. (eg if I use 100,200,300 it factors it down to 1,2,3. But if I use 100,200,299,300 suddenly my diagram is incredibly wide because it makes each scale tick mark be 1 not 100. I think I'm getting a similar issue with the date differences being weird numbers of days)

Any suggestions on how I could improve it?

concise "Date" as date
concise "Keycloak" as kc
concise "istio" as is
concise "EKS" as eks
scale 10000 as 1 pixels
hide time-axis

would this be better suited as a Gantt chart?

Hello M.,

Without scale, we now observe:

It seems good? Nor?
