With Q1'2017 wrapping up this week, here are some fresh Mesa Git statistics showing how the development of this important OpenGL/Vulkan implementation is pacing for the year.

As of this morning, for all time Mesa is up to 90,324 commits from 778 detected authors. Mesa is at 5,411 files amounting to 1,999,208 lines of code.

So far this year Mesa has seen 2,105 commits adding 60k lines of code and removing 34k lines of code. So far this is pacing lower than the 10.7k commits had in 2016 that added 513k lines of code and removed 255k lines of code. 2017 could rival 2016 still as we usually see more development work during the summer months, but then again in 2016 we saw the introduction of RADV and ANV that inflated the code-base a fair amount.

Mesa release manager Emil Velikov is the top committer so far in 2017 followed by Marek Olšák, Jason Ekstrand, Dave Airlie, Timothy Arceri, and Kenneth Graunke. 117 authors have been active so far this year.

Mesa should be back up over two million lines in just a matter of days. It was previously above two million lines until dropping the older drivers and other significant code refactoring of years past.
