Technical Issue Help : Weird language and license information

The licenses issue seems to have been fixed, but the languages summary still shows a huge amount of Puppet code. I don't know if this is supposed to be the actual code or historical, but we don't use ... [More] Automake anymore either and as far as I know there's no TeX in the current codebase either. [Less]

Feedback Forum : Hotness score calculation needs tweaking

When I look at the "hot projects" page for the Scheme language today, it shows only three projects with a nonzero hotness score. And the selection it makes from the projects with a zero score seems ... [More] pretty random and not very useful; for example the scsh-telnet and rscheme projects are dead and both have 0 "I use this" ratings. I can name several Scheme projects which are more active than the two aforementioned ones, for example Guile and CHICKEN Scheme. Both projects have seen commits in the last two weeks (as measured by ohloh). I committed to another Scheme project this weekend, but Ohloh hasn't picked up on the commits yet (that's is almost a week ago, so maybe the hotness score should take into account the last updated timestamp when calculating scores?). The project in question is CHICKEN bindings for PostgreSQL; it claims to have updated its stats 4 days ago, but there have been 8 commits on 2014-02-16. Perhaps the problem is that it's calculating some kind of "absolute" hotness, which means that the main overview of "hot projects" is fine, but the quality of the hotness overview per language suffers from it for the less popular languages. Perhaps the hotness score should not be limited to 100, or should be weighted in some way so you get a "relative" hotness score when selecting a less popular language. If the precision is cranked up, that should work: instead of the less popular language projects all ending up at zero they'd be close to zero but at least show some more useful relative sort order than what's happening currently.

Technical Issue Help : Logic behind "organisations" on user page?

Sorry to respond so late, I hadn't noticed I got a reply here. CASE Builders is not exactly the successor to Solide ICT; the companies merged and split up again later. The user overview info still shows 1 organisation :/

Technical Issue Help : Browse code shows old code

Herbert, Sorry about the late response, but it appears the latest commits are showing now in the "Browse Code" display. The processing had fallen behind due to needed backups of the ohloh Code ... [More] infrastructure. Let me know here if there are additional problems with the project. Thanks! [Less]

Ohloh Code: Code Search : Please implement recognition and parsing of Maxima language

Stefano and Kris, You can take a look at our language recognition code at https://github.com/blackducksw/ohcount (it's mostly written in Ruby) and see if you could work in support for your language. ... [More] Pull requests are happily accepted and after being evaluated they can be added to the production servers. That's about the only way that it will happen since it is hard to allocate developer time as it is... If you do, consider passing along your experiences here to others so they too have guidance about how to add their important languages to our stable. See: https://www.ohloh.net/forums/3493 for information about ohcount... Thanks! [Less]

Technical Issue Help : Project AOKP not updating

Arnav, One of the enlistments is counting lines of code and it was briefly interrupted (at more than 80,000 commits, I'm not too surprised...) I see no other failures but I'll keep an eye on it. Thanks!

Ohloh API Discussion : Restrict project retrieval to a certain language

Dear all, first of all, thanks for making the API available to us CS researchers, it is really great to have this data available! I am currently in the process of retrieving projects to form a ... [More] sample set of software for research. For my purposes, "relevant" projects are "well-known" projects "involving certain languages". For this, it would be great if I could restrict project collection retrieval to projects which use a certain language (I imagine something like &language=2). Selecting the main language is surely the most important, but specifying others (possibly multiple ones) would be very nice too. This would be in addition to the usual sorting options if possible. Is this something that you might consider adding? It would help me tremendously. I'd be happy to clarify/answer any questions, here or via email. Thank you, Philip Mayer Institute for Informatics Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Germany [Less]
