The Debian Python Modules Team is discussing which DVCS to switch to from SVN. Ondrej Certik asked how to generate a list of commiters to the team’s repository, so I looked at it and got this:

emilio@saturno:~/deb/python-modules$ svn log | egrep "^r[0-9]+ " | cut -f2 -d'|' | sed 's/-guest//' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n -r

As it’s likely that the Python Applications Packaging Team will switch too to the same DVCS at the same time, here are the numbers for its repo:

emilio@saturno:~/deb/python-apps$ svn log | egrep "^r[0-9]+ " | cut -f2 -d'|' | sed 's/-guest//' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n -r

Here I’m the 4th most committer ðŸ˜€

And while I was on it, I thought I could do the same for the GNOME and GStreamer teams:

Conclusions:

– Why do I have the full python-modules and pkg-gstreamer trees, if I have just one commit to DPMT, and don’t even have commit access to the GStreamer team?

– If you don’t want to seem like you have done less commits than you have actually done, don’t change your alioth name when you become a DD ðŸ˜‰ (hint: pox-guest and piotr in python-modules are the same person)

– If the switch to a new VCS was based on a vote where you have one vote per commit, the top 3 commiters in pkg-gnome could win the vote if they chosed the same! For python-apps it’s the 4 top commiters, and the 7 ones for python-modules. pkg-gstreamer is a bit special ðŸ™‚
