I did not find any resource for description of these fields but i think i know them all. If you need just tell me, maybe i can describe and help about it.

If you visit this SRDA wiki url [ ] it stated that data in this table is inaccurate and should not be used. Based on this statement, i did not use this table in my research and started to gather it's item manually. ( however you cannot get some of them from SRDA database, e.g. Commit count )

Arman, thanks for the information. Are the descriptions of these fields in the stats_project_all table available anywhere? You wrote this data isn't "precise"...what do you mean by that? What makes you think SF isn't populating this table (do you know who is)?

Thanks again for your help with this.

Subject: Re: [Ossmole-discuss] SRDA question about commits

Hello Barry,

All the fields in stats_project_all table is a measure for some aspect of a project. (projects in SF called Groups).
And yes, you are right about cvs_commits, it is the number of commits occurred in September 2012 in CVS system. there is also an alternative for SVN_Commits in that tables.

what i should mention is that: This Table IS NOT precise and i think SF does not populate it anymore. So i advise you to not use this table in your research.

Can you tell me where to find descriptions of what each field in the file “sf0912.stats_project_all” (and other files) is measuring? For instance, I am looking at the field “cvs_commits” and I am not sure what this data is actually measuring (and some other fields as well). I have looked over the ER diagrams and schema at the WIKI at

but I cannot find this information. For instance, I believe cvs_commits would be a measure of the number of commitments (from all developers) for new versions of a project during the month of September of 2012…but I am not certain of this. I am writing a research paper and I need to know precisely what each field is really measuring. If this information available?
