( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hey, that's a totally cool statistic -- from the 50,000 foot level. And, at a glance, that may be all we would want to look at.

Looking a little closer, here are a few questions:

  • is 15,000,000 lines of code better than, let's say, 14,000,000 lines code?
  • what percentage is actively maintained?
  • what percentage is duplication (modules that accomplish the same task)
  • what percentage is "production ready"
  • ...and more

CPANTS tries to answer some of these questions with Kwalitee metrics (and succeeds to some degree). As for the others, I'm not sure we can find an answer -- and maybe it's not important -- I'm just looking at it from a different perspective.

Cheers.
