New personal best @semiparis: 1h45m51s. Amazing weather, if not for the heavy contrary wind in the last 5k... Thanks .

At @SWHeritage we have just crossed a couple of symbolic and yet quite memorable thresholds: we have now archived more than 2 billion unique version control commits, coming from more than 150 million projects. archive.softwareheritage.org/

paper submissions for @OSSConference (co-chaired by yours truly and @vale_lenarduzzi) are open until January 24th, hurry up ! CFP and all other info here: oss2021.org/

nice brief paper on the potential impacts of , in particular on writing endeavors link.springer.com/article/10.1 (, not paywalled)

@zacchiro You're optimising your home directory to make the following number as small as possible?

find -maxdepth 1 -name '.*' ! -name . -ls | wc -l

My new hobby: getting rid of as many from my home dir as possible, by either moving them to XDG base dirs (~/.config, etc.) or just removing them (e.g., conffiles for apps I haven't used in 10+ years). I'm doing 10 at a time. I should be done by 2030.

If these trends were to continue 🤞, in contributions could increase significantly over the next decade (the extrapolation about when it will reach 50% is left as an exercise ☺) [5/6]

Show thread

The ratio of active female authors (having contributed at least one commit per year) shows similar stable growth. Both trends are more evident and stable in the 2005-2020 period than in previous decades [4/6]

Show thread

The good news is that the ratio of commits by female authors has grown steadily over the past 50 years, reaching in 2019 for the first time 10% of all contributions [3/6]

Show thread

Key findings are a mixture of good and bad news. The bad news is that, even at this scale, female authors are massively under-represented in contributions: male authors have contributed more than 92% of all commits over the past 50 years [2/6]

Show thread

In an upcoming @ieeesoftware I've conducted a longitudinal of authors of commits from @swheritage, analyzing 1.6 billion commits contributed by 33 million distinct authors over a period of 50 years. Short thread w/ links at the end 👇 [1/6]
