Hi Jody -
  thanks very much for your careful efforts .. 
  The utility of having a single "source of truth" for lines of code, 
activity and some language profile, has slightly outweighed the 
undesirable dynamic of a FOSS dot-org requiring a third-party service 
constantly to understand its own projects.   Personally, I feel OSGeo 
should have this ability in-house, along with other methods, and not 
rely so heavily on this one metric site. Certain project's measurements 
are horribly wrong to this day, and inevitably carry bias of varying 
  best regards from Berkeley

I was looking 
at https://www.openhub.net/p/geotools/analyses/latest/languages_summary today and noticed a distinct stairstep pattern every time the geotools project migrated repository CVS, SVN, 
This made the project appear at 2 million lines of code, rather than 
one million. 
I have removed the old repositories, making the project appear younger 
than it is, but giving more accurate stats about what is there. 
I am under the impression OSGeo Live enjoys these stats? feedback welcome.
