Ohloh General Discussion : Ohloh tags: some ideas to keep better organized

Hi! The tags list is very interesting! https://www.ohloh.net/tags This is AFAIK the best map of FOSS ever. It will be interesting to see the relations between tags. Ex.: games are mostly made in ... [More] language X while content management is mostly done in language Y. Some issues: 1- Since + is not supported everywhere, if I click "c++ (2094)", I get: No projects were found with tag ‘c ’ Yet, there is: https://www.ohloh.net/tags/cplusplus 2- The is c#: https://www.ohloh.net/tags/c%23 and: https://www.ohloh.net/tags/csharp 3- About .NET There is a tag dotnet (1635) but also net (3123) I suspect most of the "net" are intended to be ".net" 4- Feature suggestions 4a) a wiki page per tag Here we could explain what is meant by the tag and we could link to sources such as Wikipedia or domain-specific sites. Here is how WikiMatrix does it: http://www.wikimatrix.org/wiki/feature:Namespaces 4b) tags aliases: as a community, we should maintain a list of equivalents. Ex.: https://www.ohloh.net/tags/crossplatform https://www.ohloh.net/tags/cross-platform If combined with the idea of the wiki pages, we could suggest tag aliases in the wiki pages. This would avoid duplication and improve out taxonomy of FOSS. Best regards, M ;-) [Less]

Feedback Forum : Is open source dying, or are Ohloh statistics broken?

Hi! "The lines show the count of projects with at least one line of code changed in a month." (check values and not %) ... [More] https://www.ohloh.net/languages/compare?commit=Update&l0=c&l1=cpp&l2=java&l3=javascript&l4=perl&l5=php&l6=python&l7=ruby&l8=-1&measure=projects I'd be curious to have more data mining/analysis on this. Perhaps there is more convergence/collaboration after a period of effervescence/experimentation? Do you think the data is accurate/complete? What are your theories on what is happening? Best regards, M ;-) [Less]

You could also dual-license and make it tricker for Ohcount to determine the license :-)
