It uses the same heuristics as CLoC (with a few modifications for
increased stability), so you could run that locally and see why it does
what it does. language analysers are never 100% accurate, OpenHub's
analyser is famous for making odd claims about Forth, and GitHub's
downplays Python in many projects, the list goes on :)

Counts are lines of code, there is no weighting going on there. it's
just raw figures.

It's about as open as GitHub, OpenHub, Masterbranch etc :) The interface
for the system is public and documented (under documentation/exports),
but the internal systems on the boxes are proprietary for the most part.
