Is it possible to add a project that has source managed by Darcs into ohloh?
We don't currently support darcs directly. I haven't tried using Tailor yet (http://www.darcs.net/DarcsWiki/Tailor), but it might enable you to port a darcs repository to Git (which we do support). Hope this helps
Is there any chance you might add native darcs support soon? I'm the author of the quite popular Wiki engine DokuWiki and we use darcs to manage the code. Setting up a second, exported repository just for ohloh doesn't sound to good to me but I'd like to use your service which looks very interesting.
We have always planned to add support for all of the major source control systems, and we get a lot of requests for Darcs support, so it's near the top of our list. However, given our current workload it will probably be quite a while before we have a chance to implement this.
I know it's not a great solution, but if you are really interested in a metrics report, a clone of your repository into Git or Subversion is your best bet for now.
It would be nice if you would make your lists viewable somewhere so we can see how near the top of the list something is. It might also be nice if we could say which unsupported languages and version control systems a project uses. And if it wasn't obvious based on the thread I'm posting this in: I too want darcs support, since I've done (and do) work on a number of projects developed with darcs.
I expect that it would be a good idea to mainly associate people with their darcs contributions automatically based on email address, though I guess you could have figured that out anyway. (It's very easy to make a contribution to a darcs-based project and forget about it entirely).
