The punchcard graphs at Github are a nice way to quickly detect the rough geographical distribution (or nighttime coding habits) of the key contributors of an open source project. Here's a few selected examples from the ASF.
Apache HTTP Server
Apache Maven (core)
I prefer http://svnsearch.org/svnsearch/repos/ASF/search which gives you a lot of information about each Apache project. The schema are easier to read, IMO
I think the jackrabbit graph is spot on. Being in Australia, I can see the same level of activity on the mailing lists; it's completely silent during the day, until about five in the afternoon, when the European guys come on-line.ReplyDelete
It would be nice... if you could tell what timezone the punched cards were for. It seems needlessly inscrutable.ReplyDelete
Hilariously, one developer created a project with a single commit just to find out what the timezone of these graphs is supposed to be.
