With the release of Wayland 1.5 being imminent, here's some fresh development statistics for its active Weston compositor.

On the Weston Git tree I ran GitStats this morning to checkout the latest development trends concerning this very active compositor for Wayland where many of the experiments take place, new protocol extensions prototyped, and other changes frequently take place.

Wayland's Weston is up to 90,268 lines of code spread across 180 files and authored by 141 individuals. The Weston Git is up to 4,100 commits.
