Freecode is no longer updating

Freecode (formerly Freshmeat), the directory of Free and Open Source Software Projects, is no longer accepting new submissions. As of June 18, their site has this message on top:

The last full scrape of the Freecode RDF files took place in March. The data for the March 2014 Freecode collection is available for download from the FLOSSmole FC data site (or in the MySQL database).

RIP Freecode, nee Freshmeat.

Freecode New Project Registrations by Month, 1998-2014

Freecode (formerly known as Freshmeat) is a directory of free and open source software. FLOSSmole has been collecting Freecode/Freshmeat data since 2004. Periodically we provide snapshots as to the growth of the various forges and directories we collect data from. Here is a chart showing the rate of new project additions to Freecode/Freshmeat from January 1998 - March 2014. This data is based on the registration date recorded for each project and collected by FLOSSmole in June 2014(datasource_id 8079).

Freshmeat becomes Freecode, and how our data is affected

Three things happened recently to affect our Freshmeat collection

1. Freshmeat announced a name change to Freecode.
2. We have an issue (issue #43) that talks about how the trove definitions for Freshmeat are out of date.
3. Freshmeat replaced trove with tagging and we missed the memo

What I've done is as follows:

For issue #1 - decided not to rename our abbreviation for Freshmeat. It will remain "FM".
