    After yesterday recapping Mesa's development this year and LLVM's growing development, up today are some statistics concerning Wayland and its Weston compositor this year from the Git side...

    It looks like we're getting a review of the year on every significant project. That is dull.

    Michael is busy working on PTS right now, so some *soft* articles need to fill the gap so he can continue to eat food.

    - Just the ones that I find most interesting and care about or yield interesting data....

    - Some articles to cover an otherwise slow news week(s) around the holidays when there isn't much other upstream news.

    - And yes, I'm really busy these couple of weeks working on PTS 5.0 development work and so aside from my many pre-written articles, just some other quick articles I can write during this time when not engaged in working on PTS.

    Only have 1 or 2 other stats articles coming out in next few days.

    What is the reason for the huge dip in file (and as a side-effect line count) in wayland around 2011-01-01?

    The Wayland-demos, which where later called 'Weston', were split into a seperate repo so the Wayland repo just contains the libraries

    I think what made it grow again was the doc folder for documentation, and the tests folder which seems to have minimal unit tests.

    I see some Finnish names on those lists, are they the Jolla Sailfish developers by any chance? With them using Wayland/Weston on their phones I assume something goes upstream...

    erm, you do? pekka paalanen is a finnish name, but he works at collabora rather than jolla. the rest i can see are danish and swedish. in any case, no jolla contributions as they use qtwayland rather than weston.
