Direct database access to FLOSSmole collection

We're excited to give you all a heads up that the entire FLOSSmole database is now available directly via a MySQL server.

We have transferred the database to the NSF TeraGrid Data Central hosting site [1] (based at the San Diego Supercomputing centre). It's a bigger machine and professionally administered, which was much better than we could offer ourselves. See below for access procedure.


The FLOSSmole data repository contains:

  • 300 GB of data covering the period 2004-now, and growing
  • datasets from over 140 web spidering operations, and growing each month
  • data on about 200,000 different open source projects and their developers
