MariaDB Contribution Statistics, March 2023

Due to a catalogue of issues our previous quarterly update for developer metrics was not published. This time, however, we have made quite a few changes. In this post, we will summarise 2022 and what has happened in the first couple of months of 2023. All the data for this blog post can be found in CSV format in the release section of the MariaDB Metrics repository, along with everything you need to generate the metrics yourself.

Changes to metrics gathering

For the main commit metrics, we use a tool called “GitDM” or Git Data Miner which was developed for the git kernel trees to group commits by people and organisations.
