Stage 1 Activities

FOSS Field Trip


  1. There are 15,865 repositories returned from a search for "education", with 1,370 explicitly tagged with the "education" topic
  2. The commits graph on the insights tab shows the number of project commits each day for the past week and each week over the past year.
  3. There are 332 repositories returned from a search for "humanitarian", with 20 explicitly tagged with the "humanitarian" topic
  4. The latest commit on HTBox/crisischeckin was April 22, 2017
  5. 174 search results returned for "disaster management"


  1. Approximately 2250 projects were returned for "education"
  2. All of the repository urls are in the domain, not GitHub
  3. There are 10 similar projects
  4. Open hub provides license info, number of lines of code, commit activity, number of contributors, and more.
  5. Humanitarian returned 30, disaster management returned 30 as well
  6. The projects with no activity information seem to be ones that do not have OpenHub users contributing to the project. The source is hosted on other services, presumably where the contributors are registered.
  7. The organizations tab shows commercial and non-profit organizations that are affiliated with different projects on OpenHub
  8. Oct 10, 2017, although the aggregate stats are only provided for code pulled 6 months ago.
  9. Oct 10, 2017
  10. OpenHub is aggregating information from other repositories in snapshots, so the stats may not be immediate.
  11. Using both sources would provide broader coverage of available projects (including ones not hosted on GitHub), but may also provide inconsistent project information.
