December 2013 data released

December data has been released. We have a few old standbys (fc, rf, ow, sv, al) and some hot fresh data as well.

What is new, you ask? Well, we have some IRC chat log data for the Apache project Camel [1]. A nice new social data set, all parsed and organized into relational database format for you to query.

Rubyforge goes into the sunset

We've been collecting Rubyforge data almost since the beginning. Last month we reported on the decline of Rubyforge in light of newer forges, like Github. Here's the chart we drew:

Now we've got this lovely pair of images to contend with:

A decade of forges

We here at FLOSSmole have been gathering data about how free, libre, and open source software is made for about 10 years now, actually a little more.

In that time, a lot has changed in the forge landscape, both with the players and with the tools.

Just for fun, I decided to run a few quick queries to show the ascendance of Github and the concurrent decline of some smaller forges. These two graphs show the rate of new project creation (called 'registration' on Rubyforge and 'creation' at Github - and yes, the Github numbers do include forks).

Rubyforge License Counts, July 2012

Each project on Rubyforge can list what license it uses. The following chart was generated in July 2012 (datasource_id=317) to show the most common licenses (all those with more than 10 projects using it) and how many projects.

Rubyforge New Project Registrations, 2003-2012

Rubyforge is a software development "code forge" associated with projects written in the Ruby programming language. This chart shows the growth of new projects registered on this forge from July 2003 - July 2012. We used datasource_id=317 in this example.

What developers are working together in Rubyforge projects? (07-2011)


This graph shows a network diagram of the developers who worked together in Rubyforge projects. The purpose of this visualization was to identify developers who have a role in the most projects and interact with the most developers. The twenty developers with the most connections are represented.
