The WordPress project advances thanks to the work of many people that every single day report bugs, contribute patches or help in many other ways. I believe it’s important that from time to time we take a step back from this day-to-day frenzy activity and take a look at how the project is evolving to make sure the data trends confirm we’re going in the right direction. Today, I’ll be providing some metrics and charts focusing on the evolution of the WordPress codebase. The data has been calculated using Gitana, a SQL-based Git repository inspector. Valerio Cosentino, the main developer behind Gitana, has been kind enough to apply Gitana to the WordPress Git mirror on GitHub. Keep in mind that this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are tons of interesting data that could be calculated (and not only based on the repository but also considering Trac discussions, e.g. see some of the things we can analyze for GitHub projects). If you have a specific question/request in mind please fire it up and we’ll see what we can do. There are quite a lot of software visualization tools that could be applied to WordPress to get a different view on the project! Time between versions The public WordPress
