KDE: All Grown Up!

So, in the not too distant future KDE will turn 15 years old. This is normally a time when I will go back and reflect on lessons that can be learned from past activities in the SCM. This year is no different.

After my last blog post I was asked about the history of how many people had committed to KDE. So, for your viewing pleasure:


Number of KDE committers (accumulative) since project foundation (click to enlarge).

This plot shows, for each day, the number of accounts that had committed to the SCM up to and including that day. As you can see, lately the growth rate is starting to tail off. Again, the most sensible hypothesis is that fewer new contributors are using SVN, but git instead.
