Apache Tika is one of the open source projects I actively work on. Tika is just gearing up for a new release, so I wanted to look at where we are in terms of open vs. resolved issues. The report over the entire lifetime of Tika looks pretty nice:
The red line shows the number of new issues created, and the green one the number of resolved issues. There are a few small bumps and plateaus along the way, but the overall trajectories are looking very healthy with plenty of new issues coming in and most of them getting resolved at a good rate. Assuming no big surprises, we’ll be seeing TIKA-1000 filed sometime next year.
