Exercise: Assess a live project
- Find an active open source project.
HardInfo is a system profiler and benchmark for Linux systems. It is able to obtain information from both hardware and basic software, and organize them in a simple to use GUI.
Its an active project but with some ups and downs…
- Point to 2 pieces of evidence that the project is active.
Regular commits made this year, in june
It has as said before some ups and downs, and seems that after some tiem inactive this 2018 has turn back to live…As you can watch in contributors seems that original dev pereira has left the developement of the aplication to bp0
3. These pieces of evidence can be:
- Number of forks or stars: 43 forks and 136 star
Reflect on how you might use these insights to assess collaboration in group work:
Well i dont plan to use group work often. Just one assignement just to know how it works. The most interesting thing could be the contributors ( in insights) where we can watch the activity of the different members of the group, if there is someone that has worked a lot or if someone has not worked at all.
Also would be interesting to watch commits, who and when made them, if they have been working in a progressive way, or only worked the last day or so.
And the third important element would be the code frequency. Its a pity that you cant configure different variables like y-axis values, the period of time analyzed ( instead per weeks, per month or define the begin and end date of frequency)
