Over the past twelve months, 5 developers contributed to MooseFS. This is an average size team compared to all projects on Open Hub.
For this measurement, Open Hub considers only recent changes to the code. Over the entire history of the project, 6 developers have contributed.
The first lines of source code were added to MooseFS in March, 2015. 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 MooseFS 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.
MooseFS is written mostly in C.
Across all C projects on Open Hub, 19% of all source code lines are comments.For MooseFS, this figure is 10%.
This lack of comments puts MooseFS among the lowest one-third of all C projects on Open Hub.
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 last twelve months, MooseFS has seen a substantial decrease in development activity. This could mean many things. It may be a warning sign that interest in this project is waning, or it may indicate a maturing code base that requires fewer fixes and changes. It is also possible that development on this project has moved to a new source control repository somewhere else.
Open Hub makes this determination by comparing the total number of commits made by all developers during the most recent twelve months with the same figure for the prior twelve months. The number of developers and total lines of code are not considered.
