Lets say that we need to find out how many lines of code exist in a branch, or how many lines are checked in by a specific user. Let's ignore the usefulness of these metrics, just assume that they're needed (realistically, lines of code isn't a very useful metric, but perhaps you want to have a quick idea of how much has gone into a release). How do we do this?
TortoiseSVN statistics aren't really enough. Here's some alternatives:
Theoretically should give us graphs. Runs in python. Couldn't get it to work in five minutes so moved on.
Much more respected than the above, runs through Java. Again, didn't have results in five minutes to moved on.
Very powerful but it's not free. Generates a lot of information that you can use to analyse your repositories.
I'd recommend taking a look at FishEye if you're going to go to the effort of getting these statistics. Any comments on alternatives would be welcome!
