This ensures a very high quality in Drupal's core code base. The 10 ≠ 22 discrepancy remains unexplained. ---- For Plone at <http://www.ohloh.net/projects/plone/reviews> we might add a comparable review, with reference to <http://plone.org/documentation/manual/plone-developer-reference/overview/release-process> and/or simply highlight: * Release Manager — one elected individual * Framework team — currently five individuals — <http://plone.org/about/team/FrameworkTeam>. ---- Drupal gains a community rating of 4.3/5.0 based on 111 user ratings. 111/280 = ratings from ~39% of Drupal users at Ohloh. Plone gains a community rating of 4.3/5.0 based on 61 user ratings. 61/107 = ratings from ~57% of Plone users at Ohloh. ---- <http://www.ohloh.net/projects/plone/factoids/740563> notes: > Over the last twelve months, Plone has seen a substantial decline in > development activity … Ohloh makes this determination by comparing total > number of commits made by all developers during the most recent twelve > months with the same figure for the twelve months before that.

The April/May 2006 burst is remarkable in the videos mentioned at <http://n2.nabble.com/Plone-Code-Swarm-tp1374267p1374267.html> but that's more than 24 months ago so the perceived decline is probably attributable to other factors.
