In line with our goal of providing velocity updates every six months or so, below are the charts showing open source project velocity over 2022. Thanks to the insights we can glean from these charts, we are able to keep track of the trends and technologies that are resonating with developers and end users.  

Here are the main takeaways I see from these charts: 

CNCF projects – Last 12 months (interactive map)

Linux Foundation Projects – Last 12 months (interactive map)

Top 30 open source projects – Last 12 months (interactive map)

NOTE: We use bubble charts to show three axes of data: commits, authors, and comments/pull requests, and plot on a log-log chart to show the data across large scales. 

All of the the current and past reports are available on GitHub, as well as a list and charts on the Google sheets below:
