This is going to be a little different than our previous updates. Today I want to give you a little deeper view into the forked repos and what’s going on rather than focusing on features or percentages.
Internally, the forked repo for Elasticsearch is called “search.” Trust us, the final names will be better than our current working names. Here is a tantalizing screenshot:
Let’s look at some git stats since the fork:
- 33 commits
- 10,868 files changed
- 2,261 additions
- 1,475,326 deletions (!)
Much like the other fork, we have an extremely creative working name for the Kibana fork:
The git stats since the fork:
- 7 commits
- 20,896 files changed
- 1,261 additions
- 3,092,541 deletions (!!)
So, all together we’re looking at 31,764 files changed, 3,522 additions, and 4,567,867 deletions. While it’s true this represents a heap of work, most of these numbers represent the cleaning out of entire directories of non-Apache 2.0 licensed code.
As with our update from Wednesday, this represents the status of the forking project a little after the midpoint. Keep in mind that this is the status as we see it today - we could easily turn over a rock on Monday that would make the project look like a more complicated, longer road.
Thanks for following along and we can’t wait until you can join in on this effort!
