There is a new web site, meant to help sift through all the open
source projects out there called Ohloh. I registered Spring Python at
http://www.ohloh.net/projects/5253. It has some need features, such as
linking in news feeds as well as scanning and tracking the source code
repository. I updated http://springpython.python-hosting.com to link
This is the place where people can mark their usage of the product and
also read up-to-date news along with some code metrics.
Ohloh is relatively new and are still shaking out issues with their
mechanism of code metrics. They basically count all the commits and
give credit to whomever made the commits. A lot of people pointed out
that often the commiters weren't the people who actually wrote the
patch. I'm sure the are investigating how to deal with that. I sent
them an email that they need to integrate with tools like JIRA and
Trac and read the tickets. That would expand the view port into code
metrics. Someone else deftly pointed out that their labels should be
revised to more accurately describe the metric.
Ohloh seems to have be listening to the responses. Only time will
tell. Happy reading!
