At mozdev we just updated the way we track project activity to make it easier for people to find projects that are currently under development. I think the breakdown of project activity is interesting, so I wanted to share some of the details.
There are over 1600 projects hosted on mozdev and
- 259 projects are active (they have had some activity in the last 180 days)
- 811 projects are inactive (they have not had any activity in the last 180 days)
- 544 projects are new (they have not yet been worked on by their project owner (although the phrase ‘new project’ is misleading since some of these projects were started years ago.))
If you haven’t been to mozdev recently, take a look through some of these lists to see what people are working on.
Note: The totals have been updated to reflect a fix to a bug we just found that was counting new projects created before 2004 as inactive.
