As work for the last Master on Free Software subject (Dynamics of Libre Software Communities), I’ve redacted a brief article that tries to analyze the gedit project.

This article is just a collection of charts about gedit project activity. The information was extracted with different tools that helps to analyze data sources of a project (lines of code, repository, mailing list, …).

For example, one of these graphics shows the number of commits by the main contributors per year:

This work just joint some information gathered from different sources, any comment, correction, idea and/or suggestion are welcomed.

BTW, all the needed steps to generate the different charts with the R project are explained in the article. Maybe this examples could be useful for other cases.
