Author Statistics

CodeScene provides an aggregated view of all author contributions.

Detailed Author Statistics

The author information is intended as quick summary over the contribution activity in a codebase:

An example of detailed author statistics

Fig. 106 The detailed author statistics show the aggregated contributions.

The key metrics are:

  • Primary Component Owner: In how many architectural components is this developer the primary author?

  • Primary File Owner: In how many modules/files is this developer the primary author?

  • Commit Pattern: Is this a frequent contributor or someone that only occasionally commits code? The definitions are:

    • sparse: at least one commit per 14 days.

    • regular at least weekly commits

    • frequent commits multiple days per week.

  • Former Contributor: When checked, then this is a developer who’s no longer part of the team.
