## Some stats about our dist-git usage

You may have heard that there are some thoughts going on around integrating some continuous integration for our packaging work in Fedora.

Having in mind the question about how much resources we would need to offer CI in Fedora, I tried to gather some stats about our dist-git usage.

Querying datagrepper was as always the way to go, although the amount of data in datagrepper is such that it starts to be hard to query some topics (such as koji builds) or to go back very far in history.

Anyway, I went on and retrieved 87600 messages from datagrepper, covering 158 days.

Here is the output:

Over 158 days (from 2016-09-19 to 2017-02-23) There was an average of 554.430379747 commits per day The median is of 418.0 commits per day The minimum number of commits was 51 The maximum number of commits was 10029 Over 158 days (from 2016-09-19 to 2017-02-23) There was an average of 254.151898734 packages updated per day The median is of 119.5 package updated per day The minimum number of package updated was 20 The maximum number of package updated was 9612

To be honest I was expecting a little more, I'll try re-generating this data maybe in another way to see if that changes something, but that gives us a first clue

This is interesting data. So on average, we'd be looking at 17-23 commits/hour to trigger potential CI work. This assumes every package change is a trigger, of course. Thanks for finding these stats!
