Infrastructure load for *PART* August 2010

The pace towards Firefox 4.0 release is definitely picking up. FF4.0beta4 went out today. FF4.0beta5 is right behind it. The fast cadence of betas is one measure of how fast things are. Another way to measure how busy developers have been is by looking at #checkins :

  • 2,216: so far in August (as-of Sunday night 22nd, and we’ve still about 1/3 of the month to go!!)
  • 1,971: March 2010 (entire month – and our previous record)
  • 1,892: May 2010 (entire month)
  • 1,838: July 2010 (entire month)
      For comparison, we used to be able to handle ~1,000 checkins per month back in early 2009.

      If you are curious for all numbers going back to January 2009, see here:

  1. It’s interesting to see that the primary reason for additional pushes is more use of project branches and the tryserver. To me this represents an increased pace made possible by the increased capacity and tools provided.

    Great work!

  2. It would be interesting to know the number of checkins vs backouts in those times since it seems a lot of stuff goes in and out several times, maybe that is throwing your statistics off?

    Either way, very interesting stats.
