Hello, I'm a long time contributor to netbeans.org, The codebase itself transfered from cvs to hg recently (a year ago). Apart from the continuous failing of ohloh to index the main repository (due to it's size?), I've found this problem.
This url shows i'm enlisted 3 times as commiter. https://www.ohloh.net/p/netbeans/contributors?query=kleint&sort=commits&commit=Update My ohlog account lists me with zero commits (as the cvs enlistments were pulled off the project and replaced by the hg enlistments) however I'm not capable of changing to to any of the other ids. The "New contributor alias" dialog dialog will show me 2 combo boxes where I understand should I pick the old name in the first one and pick the new name in the second. However my name does not* appear in the first combobox at all. Only in the second one. Please advice.
I've fixed up the name mappings. You now appear in the contributor list only twice, and after the next Ohloh report update, you will appear only once, with all of your commits combined into a single contributor.
The explanation is very complicated, made worse by the fact that the NetBeans repositories are extremely large, so our analysis system is frequently stressed and in an interim state.
If you are curious, here's an explanation. In the future, I really hope we'll just fix our UI so that none of this craziness is required.
The basic cause is that our alias system only allows you to created mappings between names in currently active repositories. It does not allow you to create mappings to or from old names that are no longer used, such as old CVS repository names.
In your case, your Ohloh account was still mapped to a name from an old CVS repository, which Ohloh no longer tracks, and which our alias system therefore cannot "see".
To fix it, I went your Ohloh account profile page. Next to each project, there is a small "EDIT" link which takes you to a form where you can edit details about your contributions. One of these details is the name you used to make source control commits. I changed it from your old CVS name to your new Hg name.
Now we just have to get the NetBeans analysis on Ohloh to refresh, and we'll be set.
Sorry for the trouble, and the long-winded explanation. Let me know if there's any more trouble.
