The first lines of source code were added to hpc-collab in May, 2020. 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 hpc-collab 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.
hpc-collab is written mostly in shell script.
Across all shell script projects on Open Hub, 15% of all source code lines are comments.
This holds true for hpc-collab as well. It contains the same ratio of comment lines to code lines as the majority of shell script projects in 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, hpc-collab 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.
During the past twelve months, this project has had only one active contributor.
Over half of all active projects on Open Hub are solo efforts.
For this measurement, Open Hub considers only recent changes to the code. Over the entire history of the project, 3 developers have contributed.
