Inspired by the PHP Eats Rails for Breakfast report, I’ve registered Midgard CMS at Ohloh, a service tracking code contributions in various free software projects.
Even though it only covers the post-filesystem transition MidCOM and not whole Midgard, the Midgard Ohloh report has interesting things to tell:
- Codebase: 235,264 lines of code
- Estimated effort to produce: 62 man years
- Cost to produce: 3,4 million USD
- Programming languages:
- PHP: 61%
- HTML: 10%
We’ll have to see how the numbers change once I add the main Midgard repository with its accumulated history since 1999.
