[FOSDEM] Code contributions during FOSDEM weekend

Hi,

Extrapolating the trendline from the first 3 weekends would have come to a
very similar result.
I am afraid there is no actual statistical proof that claims that the
increase was caused by FOSDEM.

I would actually expect a slight decrease to be honest (all developers
watching talks instead of actually coding). and maybe a delayed effect in a
few days / weeks that would show an increase.


Intresting would also be to look only at the repos that were (slightly)
related to people /rpojects that  were actually on FOSDEM (impossible to do
I guess)


Sorry to spoil the enthousiasm here :)

Nathan
