And what is the use of analizing the history of a project in such detail? The ChangeLog is not enough?

For one, without the source code repository Ohloh is unable to
properly analyze lzip and uses some likely-ancient data.

Properly analyze? You mean using a method even stupidier than counting lines of code[1] (Ohloh counts commits) to assess the quality of a project?

With such method, a project written by a legion of monkeys can easily rank higher than any masterpiece of software.

OTOH, this could explain where all the cluelessness of distros comes from.
