The first lines of source code were added to Net-OpenStack-Compute in September, 2011. If this young project has had recent activity, then it likely has passed its critical early start-up period, and has become established. The project still may be rapidly changing, innovative and exciting, and finding its focus.
As this project matures, a longer source control history in conjunction with recent activity might indicate that the project has enough merit to hold contributors interest for a long time. It might indicate a mature and relatively bug-free code base, and can be a sign of an organized, dedicated development team.
Note: The source code for Net-OpenStack-Compute might actually be older than the source control history can reveal. Many new projects begin by incorporating a large amount of source code from existing, older projects. You might be able to tell whether this is the case by looking for a rapid rise in the amount of code early in the project's history.
Net-OpenStack-Compute is written mostly in Perl.
Across all Perl projects on Ohloh, 28% of all source code lines are comments.
This holds true for Net-OpenStack-Compute as well. It contains the same ratio of comment lines to code lines as the majority of Perl projects in Ohloh.
A high number of comments might indicate that the code is well-documented and organized, and could be a sign of a helpful and disciplined development team.
Over the past twelve months, 3 developers contributed new code to Net-OpenStack-Compute, making this a relatively small project team.
