        Is the KDE 5 codebase accounted for?

        Is the KDE 5 codebase accounted for?

        I know that development starts to slow down on the "legacy" version of KDE and pick up on the upcoming version as a new major version gets closer to release.

        Keeping that in mind it seems like it isn't counting the KDE 5 codebase.

Lots of high-activity git trees are not included for Gnome. And your comparison of git commits? I couldn't care less when we are looking at contributors. You are hitting strawmen right now.
          This kind of reasoning would be laughed out of any serious statistics department. Your statement is a red flag that these numbers are meaningless and is well into crackpot territory.

            Guys, don't feed the troll, please. There is no need to try to reason, you can see his intentions just by looking at the thread title.

            I think these forums need more moderators...

              Actually, there is a proof in this thread: The proof that some people (read: funkStar aka Honton) have such a pathetic real life that they have to go to an online forum, identify themselves with a desktop environment (really, a desktop environment) and since they are not able to contribute anything to that project they have to heighten their self esteem with spreading slander about other projects.

              Really, just pathetic. Honton, turn of your computer, get outside, maybe you get some friends and your life will be better. It can't get much worse.

                1) People walked away.
                2) Most commits happens to feature branches where merges make more than half the contributor names disappear. Not by merge, but per month, that is a whole lot ghost hacking if you ask me.

                You can always opt for the less likely explanation, but doing this AND throw ad hominem insults might push it a bit too far.
                Or, perhaps, feature branches aren't being merged right now. Scratch that, you know many feature branches are not being merged right now, you are just lying as always.

                  I merely described the situation. All you do is coming here and telling people how good Gnome is and how bad KDE is, with slandering and lying about the latter. You don't contribute anything. This just is pathetic, regardless if you see that as an insult or not. Grow up, contribute to Gnome in a meaningful way if you want, but stop the pathetic trolling and slandering.

                    Keep in mind that it took three years just to get Qaridrium banned... Also keep in mind that trolls are like geese - they shit everywhere and never leave.

                    As for the initial graph, the GNOME line is fairly steady and does not show a rise corresponding to the drop in the KDE line. So even if one was dumb enough to believe that the graph is a good indicator of user numbers, s/he would have to be even dumber to conclude that "gnome kills kde."

                      Just to get an idea where KDE-developers might have gone:

                      It's comparing contributors to Qt5 vs GTK+. Guess which one is Qt5
