github backup is written mostly in Haskell.
Across all Haskell projects on Ohloh, 18% of all source code lines are comments. For github backup, this figure is 25%.
This high number of comments puts github backup among the highest one-third of all Haskell 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.
The first lines of source code were added to github backup in January, 2012. 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 github backup 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.
Over the past twelve months, 2 developers contributed new code to github backup, 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, 5 developers have contributed.
