So now are you not only totally ignoring what I have said (comparing SVN to GIT numbers, for example), you are back to relying on the utterly useless Ohloh numbers. Thanks for proving to everyone just how dishonest you are willing to be to smear KDE.
Ohloh as a tool have no problems. Some readings might be wrong IF the measurement is not governed, and the tree goes obsolete or whatever. This is NOT the case with KDE, where mamarok manages it. You must be really desperate if you write off Ohloh as a tool because you don't like the fact that KDE is dying. In fact it is not really nice of you to point fingers at Ohloh. They are a free service to open source.The problems with Ohloh have already been discussed. You didn't refute those problems then. Now you are pretending that whole conversation didn't happen. Do you really think everyone will just forget things that happened a few pages?
The problem here is simple: Ohloh only tracks a single git branch. Since the switch to git, KDE development has been moving more and more into individual feature branches, something that was not done with SVN. Ohloh doesn't see any code put into those. A lot of work is also being done in scratch repos that did not exist in the SVN days and are not tracked by Ohloh, either. So the numbers are completely and utterly useless for the purpose you are trying to use them for. You would know this with about 30 seconds of checking on Ohloh, but of course you didn't do that.

KDE is dying.
Also, you are ignoring that, unlike svn, git commits are often squashed before merging, which means the number of git commits will always be lower than the number of svn ones.
I also don't see anyone writing off Ohloh either, they are just simply identifying its limitations, which is something that you do as part of critical and rational thinking.
The one thing that I seriously miss is pointing Gnome-Control-Center : Background to a directory of pictures
and it retaining that as my perferred Desktop Background Picture location.
Generally, it should default to "/usr/share/backgrounds".
Every since 3.x, no dice. I have to use "Wallch" to retain and change my wallpaper.
Speaking on Gnome-Control-Center, it looks awfully a lot like my MAC's Control Center.
What really pisses me off is that GTK3 is inheriting most of these oxymorons; such as, the pull-off menus which allowed you to drag-off the buffers menu in GVIM.
Probably not related, but Gnome guys develop on GTK as well.
Look at gnome-classic: I open the applications menu and find if I click through the containers, the underlying menus disappear.
You have to hover.
To some up,
Gnome is being run by amateurs.
Bad thing is we all got to eat that sandwich.
