2015 in numbers

While the close of 2015 nears, we want to share some geeky stats over the past year.

Let’s start with the company: number of new employees: 2. And the number of companies PowerDNS merged with: 1!

As for the software itself, there were a total of 15 releases made this year for both the Authoritative Server and the Recursor. We published 3 security announcements (sorry about those) and were issued 4 CVE numbers. Sorry for that.

When looking at the code in our master branch, there were a total of 47 code contributors that contributed, excluding merges, 1957 commits (almost 5.5 commits per day) for a total diffstat of 1691 files changed, 151221 insertions(+), 121397 deletions(-). These numbers don’t tell the whole story, if we take the cumulative changes for all non-merge commits, 794,505 lines were inserted and 711,244 were deleted.

The top code contributors from non-employees, also (gratefully) known as “the usual suspects” :

  • Aki Tuomi (309 commits / 7,104 ++ / 3,302 –)
  • Kees Monshouwer (144 commits / 126,954 ++ / 124,314 –)
  • Ruben Kerkhof (99 commits / 90,287 ++ / 89,844 –)
  • Christian Hofstaedtler (75 commits / 1,750 ++ / 1,277 –)

Aki by the way joins our sister-company Dovecot at the start of the new year!

It also appears that all PowerDNS contributors hardly sleep, here are the hours of the day where no code was commited:

  • Sunday 3:00-6:00
  • Monday 2:00-3:00
  • Tuesday 3:00-5:00
  • Wednesday None
  • Thursday 2:00 4:00
  • Friday None
  • Saturday 3:00 – 5:00

All of us at PowerDNS wish you a good 2016!
