Hundreds of contributors give ownCloud an advantage in explosive file sync and share market
LEXINGTON, MA – August 5, 2014 – /BackupReview.info/ — On the heels of the release last week of ownCloud 7 Community Edition, founder and leader of the ownCloud project Frank Karlitschek today released some startling numbers on the ownCloud community, builders of the world’s most popular open source file sync and share software.
According to Karlitschek, ownCloud has had nearly 57,000 commits made by more than 550 contributors, currently developing ownCloud at a speed of about 1,500 commits (changes to code) per month. This makes ownCloud one of the largest open-source teams in the world — in the top 2% of all project teams on Open Hub.
“Over the past twelve months alone, nearly 300 developers contributed new code to ownCloud,” said Karlitschek. “These contributors are what make ownCloud such a great way to protect the security and privacy of documents, photos, videos and even music.”
The ownCloud sync clients alone had close to 6,000 commits made by 59 contributors, giving the clients the same performance, ease of use and polish as any consumer-grade file sync and share client.
Beyond code contributors, including roughly 70 who contribute regularly, more than 4,000 people submitted bug reports and feature requests, more than 900 have closed issues and more than 6,500 participate in discussions around issues and feature requests.
