http://bitcoin.org/ official site currently lists developers as:

    * Satoshi Nakamoto
    * Gavin Andresen - (PGP)
    * Pieter Wuille
    * Nils Schneider - nils.schneider@gmail.com (PGP)
    * Jeff Garzik - jgarzik@exmulti.com (PGP)

Latest http://archive.org/ snapshot shows developers as:

    * Satoshi Nakamoto
    * Gavin Andresen - (PGP)
    * Amir Taaki - (PGP)
    * Pieter Wuille
    * Nils Schneider - nils.schneider@gmail.com
    * Jeff Garzik - jgarzik@exmulti.com (PGP)

which removes Amir Taaki's name from the list.

The site links to open source Bitcoin repository at https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin

(I may have missed some, sorriez, please let me know if I have)

I see that Amir Taaki has 0 commits to the repository (but a few pull requests) and therefore makes sense that he is removed from the developer list in that regard.

How come only a select few of the developers that DO have commits are listed on the main page?  What is the procedure necessary to deserve accreditation or recognition?  Perhaps it may be useful to have a page on the site that credits everyone that has contributed so that each person may deserve their fair share of recognition for their contributions?

It would be exciting if contributions were displayed similarly.  Bitcoin is open source community effort.  Contributors should deserve better support/recognition for their contributions.   Currently only a select few are gaining recognition and attention from being listed at bitcoin.org home page.

Good idea.

The developers listed on bitcoin.org are the people who have 'push' rights to the github source tree, but I like the git approach.

Who wants to volunteer to make it happen?

Will I see you in Amsterdam?

If you mean a PHP file that parses Git repository and produces a list of developers, categorized and sorted - I can do it.

Tell me what you need.

Also, I can possibly volunteer to make it happen.

Regarding the additional repos referenced above (as well as all other bitcoin-related repos), would it make sense to include on the home page committers from each additional repo (see above) or would it be better to preserve only using the single http://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin repo?  Perhaps if listing only commiters of the single http://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin repo on the home page, then a link directly below it to a list of additional repos could be included that also lists committers of those additional repos?

Ok, I've managed to get the list of commits. It is returned by pages, here's an example of the first page:

http://qbizy.com/commits.php

I guess I also need to get closed pull requests and categorize developers into those who make commits and those who make pulls, right?

This is obviously too slow to be done on every page load, so the ideal solution would be to run it by cron from time to time and store stats in a database.
Then display them from the database on each page load.

Do you have a database installed at bitcoin.org? It can be done through files, but database is more reliable and flexible than files.

EDIT: And here are the closed pull requests:

The page takes about 10 seconds to load, so be patient.

Alexz: Wouldn't it be easier to just use the "git shortlog" command? It can show the commit count per author (see my previous post).

The only problem is that the same author can appear under different names (e.g. in the output above: s_nakamoto, Satoshi Nakamoto and --author=Satoshi Nakamoto (which was some command line mistake im sure Tongue )). The .mailmap feature might be able to solve this though. See bottom of http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-shortlog.html

The API docs are closed for maintenance, so I had to piece info bit-by-bit from other sources Smiley

I am completely new to Git's API, so I did what I found. If there's a better way - that's great!
I will check it out when the docs server will be back from maintenance.

BTW, by "git shortlog" did you mean OS command by any chance?

And this is the final version with database support:

http://qbizy.com/show.php

Results are displayed from the database, which is filled by processing all 27 pages of commits and 32 pages of closed pull requests.

Can somebody do a sanity check on this? To me it looks a bit strange, maybe I've made an error somewhere...

Yeah I meant the normal OS command. Here is a cached version of the docs: https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:fwJsXAH-4yUJ:www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-shortlog.html

But it looks like you are already done. Nice work!

Well, I did a web version that scans live git repository, you don't need to download it.

Also it might be more suitable for web sites than the OS-bound version.

Ideally, there should be a simple script that scans all the Bitcoin repositories, tallies them up, and writes a static file for the webpage, put in a cronjob maybe once a week.
