Still Committing Like Crazy

About a year ago, I wrote a post talking about the avalanche of commits coming into GitHub. That Tuesday, GitHub received 33,154 pushes containing 109,290 commits. An insane number to be sure, but where are we at a year later?

Here’s last week:

Sunday

Pushes => 40,185
Commits => 99,533

Monday

Pushes => 75,496
Commits => 412,882

Tuesday

Pushes => 83,922
Commits => 289,867

Wednesday

Pushes => 83,406
Commits => 277,453

Thursday

Pushes => 82,141
Commits => 210,362

Friday

Pushes => 71,830
Commits => 187,456

Saturday

Pushes => 35,405
Commits => 153,282

What that means:

  • GitHub’s mid-week push traffic has more than doubled in the last 12 months
  • Weekends are now as busy as weekdays were last year

Sick.
