Systemd continues growing in size and now consists of more than one thousand files and is approaching 550,000 lines of code.

In seeing where systemd is at today I ran GitStats on the systemd Git code to see how its development is pacing by the numbers. As of today, systemd consists of 1,434 files and is at 541,704. Systemd development spans 15,282 commits so far from 501 different authors.
