We’ve had an exciting winter with #puppethack and Puppet Camps in Atlanta, London, Melbourne, Düsseldorf, and Seattle. Our Contributor Summit EU just happened on February 4th. We have a slew of Puppet Camps now accepting talks in locations all over the world this winter and spring. And the Puppet community made many great contributions to Puppet code and knowledge in October, November and December, so we'd like to take a moment to share some highlights.
The Puppet mailing lists have been active, with 3,053 messages and 595 participants. Felix Frank, John Bollinger and Trevor Vaughn topped the charts with 179, 153 and 43 messages, respectively.
The Ask site, a platform for questions and answers about Puppet, lit up with 471 questions posted and 460 replies given in Q4 — up from 288 questions and 289 answers in the third quarter. We need your help answering even more questions! Thanks to cbarbour, llowder, Greg Larkin and rnelson0 for helping so many people with their queries.
As for our GitHub projects, we’ve seen 2,886 commits from 343 folks. We had 257 modules created and 1,622 module updates. We would like to thank dhoppe, aethylred, and inkblot for 51, 32 and 25 updates, respectively.
You can view these metrics any time on our new metrics site. Check out all the work our vibrant Puppet community is doing, in real time! We'd also like to thank the wonderful community metrics experts at Bitergia, who have been great partners in building our metrics website.
Thank you to everyone who participated this quarter in the mailing lists, in code revisions, at events, in module authorship, in person, in questions, and in answers. We love working with you.
