Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: OpenACS CVS Statistics Report
I think if we are equating contributor value to changes in code base, it's also important to somehow include contributions via patch submission by folks that don't have CVS commit rights...

Contributed value can't really be adequately measured by LOC, and I don't think anyone above suggested otherwise. What these CVS statistics show though, is that a lot of code has been (and presumably is being) contributed, and by a lot of different people. That in and of itself is interesting, and like Jade says, maybe useful from a technical marketing point of view.
