Over the past twelve months, 2 developers contributed new code to Eish!, making this a relatively small project team.
For this measurement, Ohloh considers only recent changes to the code. Over the entire history of the project, 3 developers have contributed.
The source code repository for Eish! has less than a year of continuous activity. This likely is a relatively new project.
A short history is not necessarily a bad thing (all projects have to start somewhere!) but often, newer projects are changing rapidly and are thus less stable. They are also often innovative and exciting!
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 Eish! 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.
Eish! is written mostly in Ruby.
Across all Ruby projects on Ohloh, 18% of all source code lines are comments. For Eish!, this figure is only 7%.
This lack of comments puts Eish! among the lowest 10% of all Ruby projects on 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.
