Let's top git.io
So, very recently the excellent Vastyn (Henry Van Styn) pointed out that we should be at the top of git.io:
" I came across our very own Kent Fredric’s GitHub profile today and did a double-take when I read his contrib stats:
# "Year of contributions: 21,996 total
Without even speculating by what kind of dedication/witchcraft this number is even possible, it made me curious about stats in general for GitHub, and some googling turned up this page:
This is a report of the “Most Active” 256 GitHub users. Well, not quite… The current number 1 on the list has HALF the contribs (kevinsawicki at “11,430”).
kentfredric doesn’t show up because of this second caveat: "Only first 1000 GitHub users according to the count of followers are taken. This is because of limitations of GitHub search.
Currently, Perl is very poorly represented, with just a handful of our luminaries showing up (with the first not coming until #40).
I’m not sure how important this report/page actually is, but, I figure, why not if it is this easy! kentnl has already quietly done the hard part by somehow managing to average over **60** GitHub contributions per day, every day, for at least the past 365 days. All we have to do it make 2 clicks of the mouse, and tell our coworkers to do the same. It seems like we can make this happen in a blink of an eye…
So this is really simple people. If you have a Github account follow these two steps:
Click this link: https://github.com/kentfredric
Then Click: FOLLOW
Let's do it.
* Huge thanks to Vastyn for finding this and pointing it out, and to Ingy for doing additional leg work.
