I'm planning to release the November community metrics report  next
week. In order to have more accurate stats on new contributors, can you
help checking these names? It would be great if you are/know the false
new contributor and you would claim the new commits to your Ohloh username.
Note that an old contributor (e.g. in MediaWiki) is still a new
contributor if sends a patch for the first time to e.g. Visual Editor.
The problem comes when "old" editors in a project change the email
address or name, because then Ohloh plays safe and considers them a new
Answer from Ohloh: "Ohloh has only tracked names coming out of
source-control, mainly because it was built around CVS and Subversion.
With distributed SCMs, like Git, Mercurial and Bazaar, email addresses
became available but internal data model still relies on names.
Reworking internal data model to make emails first class citizens has
its own drawbacks and cost associated. We are trying to find a middle
ground and are working on making contributions "claimable" by email and
that should improve the flow for contributors." --Qgil (talk) 15:21, 2
