Date Sun, 25 Nov 2012 21:35:15 GMT
Dear users, developers and team members!

2012 is slowly coming to an end and Libcloud team wishes everyone a happy
and successful new year 2013!

2012 has been another great year for us and we have surpassed 2011 in
pretty much every aspect.

Here is a short list of things which have been accomplished and important
events which have happened in 2012:

- 1 new committer Ilgiz Islamgulov (ilgiz) has joined the team.
- 128 new JIRA issues have been opened (total of 265). Out of those 128
issues, 108 are now marked as 'resolved'.
- SVN repository has had a total of 320 commit. More than 50% of those
commits were patches from external contributors.
- We had our first Google Summer of Code student which worked on a project
named "Libcloud REST" ( The
goal of the project is to expose Libcloud functionality over HTTP.
- Tomaz gave a talk titled "Avoiding Vendor Lock-In Using Apache Libcloud"

- We now finally have some more user friendly documentation and examples on
the website -

the beginning of the year (
- We had a total of 7 releases (0.8.0, 0.9.1, 0.10.1, 0.11.0, 0.11.1,
0.11.3, 0.11.4) and over 65.000 downloads / installs on PyPi (
- Github mirror has been starred by 266 users (

Thanks again to everyone for their work and contributions and lets make
2013 even better :)

I will post those numbers in a more machine readable format (JSON) in the
next couple of weeks. This way it will be easier for us to track those
metrics on a year over year basis.
