After yesterday recapping Mesa's development this year and LLVM's growing development, up today are some statistics concerning Wayland and its Weston compositor this year from the Git side.

Wayland itself with its core Git repository is at just 20,719 lines of code spread across 103 files. Most of this is just the core XML protocol and associated code while most of the upstream Wayland work is focused upon the Weston playground for new experiments and deciding what needs to be added to the core protocol. Wayland's Git has seen 1,451 commits from 90 different authors.

Wayland saw just 215 commits this year, compared to 434 commits the month prior. However, this lower count isn't too surprising given that core Wayland has begun stabilizing and most work now is focused upon Weston and work outside like on porting tool-kits and external projects to using this display protocol.

Kristian continues to be responsible for most of the upstream work on the project he founded seven years ago. Other top authors this year included Aaron Faanes, Bryce Harrington, Jason Ekstrand, Alexander Larsson, Peter Hutterer, and Matthias Clasen.

While Weston saw a ton of new code land in 2013 providing lots of new features and functionality, by commits it's actually down compared to 2013. Weston saw 1,503 commits in 2012 but year to date it's saw only 1,086 commits.

The line count of Weston was rapidly rising this year with all of the features added.

In case you missed it, be sure to read about the new features coming to Wayland/Weston 1.4 when it should be officially released next month. In comparison, there's also Mir development statistics from this week.
