    September eh, well not if things continue on their current trend. According to Mesa Matrix it's been almost a Month since anything interesting has been done; not counting the one single commit one week ago and several drivers still have no 4.0 support.

    Yep, it's possible, but it won't be in mesa 11 yet. What's missing is fp64 and tessellation. fp64 is being worked on. Tessellation will be trickier, as it doesn't seem Intel has anyone assigned to work on it, so it might take some time. Maybe once Intel is finished with GLES 3.1, they'll assign someone to implement tessellation.

    They all do a fantastic job, i'm a bit spilt about this kind of statistics since number of commits doesn't show the work behind them.

    The irony.

    On a more serious note though -- I think the purpose was more to demonstrate the fact that Mesa is still very much a very active project. Not to highlight specific developers but more to highligh the project as a whole. And 1 or 2 golden patches are not going to bring it to where it could/should be, there still remains a lot of work to be done. The fact it has seen a lot of activity this year is simply put a very good sign and I think that is what you should take from an article like this.

    Marek does such awesome work on the AMD front. I cringe when I see UTF-8 errors in his name on phoronix articles.

    I find this article pretty useless...

    As if the number of lines of "code" or the number of commits make a developer a good one.
    There are pure-gold changes of just one or few lines of code that improve performances and take months to be discovered.

    Also, does GitStats count all the code comments ? Every Mesa file has an average of 20 lines of license header. Plus sometimes they copy parts of a RFC as comment.
    2000 lines of code are no better than 20 lines.

    Fixing a typo is a commit. Changing a comment is a commit. A copy-paste of some specifications is a commit. Changing a variable name is a commit. Reverting a change is a commit.
    All of them don't actually count as valuable commits.
    Also, 7000 commits in one year are no better than 700 commits. They just indicate how big are the steps they've taken. Probably in 2010 they just made a lot of small, constant steps.

    I don't find fair to rank developers (with their full names) based on the lines of code or the number of their commits.

    We should pay more respect for what they're doing, instead of wasting our time writing or reading these kind of articles.

    The screenshots / GitStats results are all from GitStats itself.
