Open HUB (formerly known as "Ohloh") has statistics on the value of Audacity development. The Open HUB "badge" at the bottom of each page on this site shows updated summary values. The statistics are set up by us to show only the values of Audacity-specific development, excluding the third-party code libraries Audacity uses. Searchable commit listings are produced every 10 days.
Join the audacity-devel mailing list to discuss current and future development, or to get help modifying the Audacity source code.
