Project activity
« on: March 08, 2006, 08:26:52 pm »
Hi on this page the project activity is listed for the present week (bottom right). It is nice to know that C::B is very near the top. C::B was at 100% last week or the week before. :D Good things are happening with this project.  8)

another one is : devQT.
Need to check this out one day, maybe we learn something overthere for our "better" IDE ;-)

Hmm I can't find any binaries? Only source .zip.  :? I'm definitely not installing QT on my system just to check it out.  :lol:

It's a totally new project with very limted capabilities (for now at least). It's been a berlios project for less than a month or so and it has the support of www.qtcentre.org (the most popular Qt forum). That explains the high activity.
Life would be so much easier if we could just look at the source code.

Activity does not mean anything, anyway. It is a complex and seriously flawed (thus rather useless) measure composed of several parameters which are not evaluated in a fair manner at all. It's a Sourceforge feature, and BerliOS uses a modified version of Sourceforge.

We had a 40% activity rating for several months, although we clearly were more active on a daily base than some projects which were listed with 99.99%. That was annoying because those projects would get top-ranked on the front page while ours would not.
As you can see, we have changed a few strategically important points in the mean time, so our ranking is better now. :)

A bit off-topic, sorry. After some users, devQT seems a new beginning of an already existing project Qt4DS.

Regarding the project's activity, IMHO the percentage is not so important. If the devs make a good work, the users will remark it and they will be interested in the project :D. If the devs make a bad job, they will be not interested even if the percentage is high.

Best wishes,
Michael
