An Interesting Bit Of Info

August 23rd, 2005 Leave a comment Go to comments

This is an interesting bit of information, as it presents a graph of KDE’s CVS (and now SVN) commits (per month) since the project started. (Click on the graph picture to get a bigger version)

It shows the standard peaks and troughs as you would expect, and the fact that the number of developers working on the project has increased, etc, etc.

The really interesting thing is this: The project founder “Coolo” has peaks and troughs in the number of commits per month (as is to be expected), but his peaks and troughs seem to roughly match those of the entire project commits.

So what goes on in those months that seems to completely flounder KDE development?

    Code freezes
    My guess would be a monthly release scheme or freeze — e.g., SBCL has point releases on the 24th of each month, so they wind down features earlier in the month to do testing.

    Could Be Code Freezes…
    … But I’m not entirely convinced – KDE don’t have a set schedule for freezes, they only have them just before a release. I’m kind of thinking it’s along the lines of holidays and enthusiasm for the project, mixed in with things like code freezes. Just don’t know!
