Not directly related to dwm, but I thought people interested in suckless
software would find this interesting.

Ohloh is like a Web 2.0 Freshmeat. It has cheesy gradients and curved
corners, but it provides some "deep" data by analyzing the source
revision history of open source projects.

Behold the codebloat races!

Xfce, KDE, Gnome: http://www.ohloh.net/projects/compare?project_0=Xfce&project_1=KDE+-+K+Desktop+Environment&project_2=GNOME&submit=Go

Dillo, Elinks, Firefox: http://www.ohloh.net/projects/compare?project_0=Dillo&project_1=Elinks&project_2=mozilla+firefox&submit=Go

Eclipse, Emacs, Vim: http://www.ohloh.net/projects/compare?project_0=Eclipse+Platform+Project&project_1=GNU+Emacs&project_2=Vim&submit=Go

Projects tagged as "window_manager":

Unfortunately, ohloh doesn't currently support Mercurial. It'd be nice
to get graphical stats on dwm and wmii, though wc will do for now.

10 points to the first person to find steady "negative" code growth!
