Comparative Analysis - Report (July 2018)

July has been little stressful for me. Why? For the first time ever, I struggled to find issues to help with PR. Partly because the "Kwalitee" link was broken for first 2 weeks. Even when it became active, there was hardly anything for me to work on. Is it because CPAN authors are becoming smarter these days? At one point, I thought I am going miss the target of average 1 PR a day. Luckily the second half of the month was really productive. Apart from PR, there is another thing that kept me on my toes, which is daily uploads to CPAN. Having done this for over 1000 days without break in the past, I am finding it hard to carry on currently at 345 days. However I have enough things to carry on for at least another 2 weeks. I would be happy if I could complete 1 year without break.

Lets do comparative analysis on the listed points:

  • Pull Request
  • Git Commits
  • Pull Request Challenge
  • Perl Blog
  • PerlWeekly Newsletter
  • Adopt CPAN Module

Pull Request

Last month, I submitted 41 PR as compared to 46 PR in the month of June 2018.

Overall so far, I have submitted 941 PR. I am hopeful to reach the milestone of 1000 PR before the next London Perl Workshop in Nov 2018.

Git Commits

Last month, there were 386 commits as compared to 412 commits in the month of June 2018.

Overall so far, total commits in the year 2018 is 2695. To beat last year record (3073), I still have 5 months in the year.

Pull Request Challenge

Last month, I received WebService::Idonethis as my July month assignment. I submitted couple of Pull Requests as below:

as compared to 1 PR to my allocated distribution Module::Package in the month of June 2018.

Overall so far, I have submitted 63 PR since the beginning of Pull Request Challenge.

Perl Blog

Last month, I blogged the following

as compared to this in the month of June 2018.

PerlWeekly Newsletter

Last month, I prepared the following editions of PerlWeekly newsletter.

as compared to just 2 (Issue 358 and Issue 360) in the month of June 2018.

Adopt CPAN Module

No new adoption last month. However I still have to publish first release since I adopted Time::Warp.

What else going on other than this? Finished working on slides for my short talk "How to become CPAN Contributor?" at the next The Perl Conference in Glasgow.

If you are planning to attend The Perl Conference in Glasgow then please come and say "Hi".

Till then keep contributing.
