Last Rubyforge Collection

The last Rubyforge collection happened yesterday. The datasource_id = 12987. All the data is located on our file downloads site, or in the database (ossmole_merged schema, tables prefixed 'rf', use datasource_id=12987 in your SQL queries).

RIP Rubyforge! We have been collecting from there for 10 years. Charts and graphs coming soon.

Django IRC data loaded into database

Django is a Python web framework. And of course it is an open source project. I have downloaded the entire collection of IRC logs for this project starting with the first logs from 2011. The logs are split into lines, parsed into fields (message, sender, time, date, etc) are now loaded into ossmole_merged database on our live MySQL server in a table called django_irc.

Each datasource_id represents one day's log file. Right now we have datasource_id 8442-9435.

New Apache project IRC data

Hello moles! Happy January. Here are some fresh new data sources for your mining pleasure:

1. Freenode channel list and topics (all public channels with 3 or more users). The table is called "fn_irc_channels".
2. Apache Activemq IRC logs (one datasource_id per day, one row per message).
3. Apache Aries IRC logs
4. Apache Camel IRC logs
5. Apache CXF IRC logs
6. Apache Karaf IRC logs
7. Apache Kalumet IRC logs
8. Apache Servicemix IRC logs

here is a sample of what the structure looks like for 2-8:

New Apache People-Roles-Projects data

Hot off the presses! Another update to the Apache people-roles-projects data:

Datasources 1578-1585 have updated information on people working on Apache projects, including committer lists, PMC lists, PMC chairs, etc.

Timezones are also now being collected as well.

This is an update to the original dataset described in the paper "Project Roles in the Apache Software Foundation: A Dataset" (2013), written by yours truly.

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:

New home for flat files

Many of you know that we provide flat files of our data for download by anyone at any time. Until recently we had hosted these on Google Code (before 2009 or so, we hosted them on Sourceforge). Recently, Google Code announced that projects will not be able to have file downloads as of January 2014. So we had to find a new home for our files.

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).
