I just came across Ashutosh's blog about open source analysis using ohloh.net for WSIT and XWSS. Interesting info there. Worth reading.
So, of course I was tempted to try it for my open source modules: WSIT NetBeans modules. Some interesting info to mention here:
1. Codebase - 33122 LOC
2. Estimated Effort: 8 Person years
Hmmm, man, I am productive ;O) I'm the only one working on the code for little more than a year (with a few small commits coming from other NetBeans guys. I had a lot of sleepless nights working on the project with it's schedules trying to deliver the tooling story and the number seems to reflect that. Of course, the number is way too off, and the metrics used are always arguable, but looking at numbers of other projects which I know well and worked on (NetBeans, WSIT, Glassfish, ...), they usually reflect the reality quite well.
