FTP Team stats during Wheezy development

with one comment

Already chilled by Wheezy freeze? It’s been a long ride since the release of Squeeze, and your beloved FTP Team tried to assist our tireless developers and contributors at its best. Here are some hot stats to give you a figure about what happened behind the scenes.

Since the release of Squeeze, 7462 .changes files with NEW components were processed by dak, with an average of 14.660 NEW packages per day. On the FTP Team side, we had 6877 accepts (13.511 per day), 641 rejects (1.259 per day) and 280 comments to maintainers (0.550 per day). This table represents the activity by single team member:

Login Accepts Rejects Comments
ansgar 407 accepts (0.800 per day) 71 rejects (0.139 per day) 53 comments (0.104 per day)
dak 12 accepts (0.024 per day) 1 rejects (0.002 per day) 0 comments (0.000 per day)
dktrkranz 4319 accepts (8.485 per day) 381 rejects (0.749 per day) 104 comments (0.204 per day)
joerg 100 accepts (0.196 per day) 12 rejects (0.024 per day) 1 comments (0.002 per day)
mhy 214 accepts (0.420 per day) 14 rejects (0.028 per day) 5 comments (0.010 per day)
stew 67 accepts (0.132 per day) 16 rejects (0.031 per day) 7 comments (0.014 per day)
tolimar 1480 accepts (2.908 per day) 93 rejects (0.183 per day) 84 comments (0.165 per day)
twerner 278 accepts (0.546 per day) 53 rejects (0.104 per day) 26 comments (0.051 per day)



Who were the most prolific maintainers who got a NEW processing? Here is our special top ten:

  1. Debian Perl Group (559 accepts)
  2. Debian Haskell Group (491 accepts)
  3. Debian Ruby Extras Maintainers (285 accepts)
  4. Debian Java Maintainers (257 accepts)
  5. Debian Med Packaging Team (164 accepts)
  6. Debian Multimedia Maintainers (160 accepts)
  7. Debian Fonts Task Force (156 accepts)
  8. Debian Javascript Maintainers (137 accepts)
  9. Debian Python Modules Team (129 accepts)
  10. Debian Qt/KDE Maintainers (98 accepts)

That doesn’t reflect the real developers, though. Here’s our Changed-By top ten:

  1. Clint Adams (216 accepts)
  2. Jonas Smedegaard (208 accepts)
  3. Ben Hutchings (203 accepts)
  4. Joachim Breitner (153 accepts)
  5. TANIGUCHI Takaki (112 accepts)
  6. Alessio Treglia (101 accepts)
  7. David Paleino (95 accepts)
  8. Nicholas Bamber (76 accepts)
  9. Mathieu Parent (68 accepts)
  10. Jeff Breidenbach (63 accepts)

Clint rocks with tons of Haskell packages, followed by Jonas (mostly Perl packages), and Ben (kernel uploads). Italian cabal stands still, with Alessio and David respectively at 6th and 7th place😉



How long does a package stay in NEW? Some more, some less, but the average is 3 days, 15 minutes and 21 seconds. Now go and check your dak mails to see whether you had a fast processing or not🙂

liblog4ada 1.2-1 surely had, as it was accepted after 30 seconds! gsoap 2.7.17-1 was not so lucky, it took 103 days, 8 hours, 20 minutes and 43 seconds to clear NEW, but then made its way to the archive. Better late than never😉



FTP Team is not just accepting NEW packages, but also removing obsolete ones. Here are some details about this task:

  • Source packages removed: 2159
  • Binaries for architecture all: 8773
  • Binaries for architecture alpha: 3646
  • Binaries for architecture amd64: 14653
  • Binaries for architecture arm: 3
  • Binaries for architecture armel: 13283
  • Binaries for architecture armhf: 3423
  • Binaries for architecture hppa: 1418
  • Binaries for architecture hurd-i386: 6923
  • Binaries for architecture i386: 15655
  • Binaries for architecture ia64: 12365
  • Binaries for architecture kfreebsd-amd64: 10972
  • Binaries for architecture kfreebsd-i386: 10998
  • Binaries for architecture mips: 12478
  • Binaries for architecture mipsel: 12479
  • Binaries for architecture powerpc: 13945
  • Binaries for architecture s390: 12374
  • Binaries for architecture s390x: 3884
  • Binaries for architecture sparc: 12295



FTP Team also took care of override changes:

  • Number of priority changes: 853
  • Number of section changes: 975
