Subject Cost of Jackrabbit
Date Fri, 11 May 2007 20:06:36 GMT

There's a nice open source directory site at http://www.ohloh.net/. It
automatically collects all sorts of statistics and makes them
available in a nice format. See the Jackrabbit entry at

Among the more useful statistics (e.g. Jackrabbit trunk is > 200 kLOC,
growing steadily) there's also a flashy Project Cost calculator that
is probably there more to generate incoming links than to provide any
real information. In any case, it suggests (I guess the calculator
assumes some average programmers) that the current Jackrabbit codebase
is worth about 60 person years of effort or about 3 million dollars of
money. Something to keep in mind for the next time someone asks you
how much Jackrabbit is worth. :-)
