GitHub has just pushed out the latest feature: Contributions. I took a screenshot of my profile page:

I love this new feature. You can clearly see what you have done towards others repositories and the amount at when you do. That calendar is definitely the spotlight of the entire feature. Longest streak is probably the most interesting number among the statistics to me. Only 8 days streak coding, I must code harder!

Coincidentally, I was thinking something Id call Contribution Ratio. Its basically calculating commits to others repositoriesdirect commit or via pull requests are all countedover total commits, then you have a percentage, the higher means you contribute more. Although, it doesnt really indicate you have no contributions even when its 0%, you may be maintaining a popular open source project under your account name.

Off-topic: as you can see I know use GetSatisfaction to handle feedback, previously Google Moderator. If you have any suggestions, please add it there.

I want to see such number because I feel I havent contributed any recently, and would like to know how low my number is. However, I didnt start it, because itd be just a number, even that wouldnt take long to code it. If you want to see such number, add your vote on that idea.
