Google Code had an anniversary today and they mentioned some of their stats. There was one in particular that I thought was pretty interesting:

Today, there are more than 240,000 projects registered, with commits coming in at about 17,000 per day…about 1 every 5 seconds 1

Interesting because I had a feeling GitHub’s numbers were much higher. So, I hit our database with a couple of queries and here they are:

Yesterday, GitHub received 33,154 pushes containing 109,290 commits…about 1 every second.

Edit: In case you were also wondering about Sourceforge, according to their homepage, they’ve received 8,522 commits today.
