Statistics for June 2009

I first published some statistics one June 6th. I intend to follow changes in Fink’s distribution on a monthly basis. The statistics for June 2009 are based on the period June 6th to 30th. Subsequent statistics should consider whole months.

As usual, these statistics refer to package description files. A package description is a .info file that describes the information that Fink needs in order to manage packages. Sometimes a package is split into multiple .info files (e.g. package-10.4.info and package-10.5.info). It is also possible that a single .info file defines multiple packages: split-offs, different Perl/Python/… versions, -mac/-x11, etc. I’ve also counted a .info file that is in both stable and unstable as a single file.

The (monthly) evolution of the number of package descriptions is shown inside parentheses/in italics.

Currently Fink has 5,185 (+74) .info files split into the following sections:

Section # of Pkgs
libs/perlmods 661 (+3)
libs 449 (+6)
sci 429 (+8)

These 10 top maintainers (excluding “No maintainer”) are responsible for 2,558 (49%) package descriptions, having been responsible for 44 (59%) of the new package descriptions added this month. Out of 288 (+2) maintainers, 125 (+2) (43%) of them maintain only one package description, and 211 (+2) (73%) of them maintain five or less package descriptions.

There are 548 (-1) (11%) unmaintained package descriptions.
