Over the past twelve months, 16 developers contributed to OS Client Tools. This project has a relatively large team, in the top 10% of all project teams on Ohloh.
For this measurement, Ohloh considers only recent changes to the code. Over the entire history of the project, 31 developers have contributed.
The first lines of source code were added to OS Client Tools in July, 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 OS Client Tools 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.
OS Client Tools is written mostly in Ruby.
Across all Ruby projects on Ohloh, 18% of all source code lines are comments. For OS Client Tools, this figure is only 11%.
This lack of comments puts OS Client Tools among the lowest one-third 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.
