15:03 mohawk that module count for "go" is a bit eye-watering
19:47 pdurbin heh. eye-watering?
20:15 mohawk as in very large ;-)
20:57 pdurbin ah
22:25 sivoais I have wanted to analyse the module ecosystems better, but ENOTIME. Also, it is rather hard to mirror all the code for most of those.
22:46 sivoais if you're curious about what my undeveloped thoughts about analysing the code are, here <https://github.com/zmughal/mo‚Äčdule-ecosystem-code-analysis>
22:48 pdurbin sivoais: "If you'd like to check out the data in more detail, you are welcome to download it in a CSV file." http://www.modulecounts.com/modulecounts.csv
22:52 pdurbin or do you not trust that data?
22:53 sivoais pdurbin: that's just counts. I want to know about how a module fits into other tools. How much do modules get reused (is-a, has-a). What is their code coverage? Who uploads modules and what is the pattern behind uploaders (are most of the modules made by lone people writing a just couple of modules or are there super-uploaders that account for a large chunk of the code)
22:55 sivoais questions like that are getting closer to understanding robustness which raw counts don't give
22:56 sivoais it's a large undertaking... I'm not sure if the questions are important enough to put in all the work
23:02 pdurbin yeah, counts are easier
