(at Antelink) just launch a service
that monitors the rate of reuse within a large set of open source
projects. This free service is a byproduct of our R&D activity
and is based on a large sample including more than 162.000 projects
from SourceForge and GoogleCode mainly. It covers projects from the
very beginning of open source history till up to now, without filtering
based on technologies.
Looking for an example, we find
interesting to use this service on very popular components like
Apache commons. We derived a cloud including most popular
apache-commons releases from which reuse rating can be extracted for
each of them.
Hoping this service is useful for the community, and aiming to improve
further versions, we
will be very open to feedbacks and comments about the service, and
suggestions regarding studies of interest for the community.
