The MediaWiki project recently migrated from SVN to GIT and now instead of having a directory in which all the extensions reside we have a pile of git repos, one for each extension. They are listed here:
I'm looking for a day to have all repos there be held into account for the project statistics here on Ohloh. Any recommended way to do this?
To clarify: I want to end up with something that does not need manually maintaining the list. If people add or remove an extension, no extra steps should be taken to have correct stats here.
No way to do this? :/
At this time we have no ability to do this. I can imagine a "super-repository" method where all the individual repos housed at a particular address would be scanned. The problems are twofold: first, I am not a programmer and I can only imagine the complications involved in this approach. Second, if the result is a great many separate individual enlistments, this raises the likelihood that failures for the composite would be much higher than for a single repository. In my experience, the stability of a project goes down in inverse log proportion to the number of individual repositories maintained. Look at many of the Linux Distro projects here - almost all of them are crippled by continuous failures because they need so many repositories to be enlisted.
Your thoughts and any others are solicited.
