Congratulations to the Orion team for being named a 2011 Open Source Rookie of the Year project by Black Duck Software. Black Duck based the awards on the data they analyzed from their two services: Ohloh and the Black Duck Knowledgebase. The metrics they used were:
“Using a weighted scoring system, points were awarded based on commit activity (commits per day), size of the project team and the number of in-bound links to the project. Black Duck determined the top 10 projects following an audit of its findings and normalization of scores.”
This is certainly great news for the Orion team and a great way to start their second year. Congrats!
