Use cases of this metric

  1. At a team level, this measure gives you a pattern for how many commits are being made over a period of time. At >1/member/working day this implies that everyone is committing code daily, which is a good practice. Over a longer period the average might be lower but should still be >80% of team members committing code daily
  2. Provides a quantifiable measure of code contribution, aiding in evaluating team and individual productivity.
  3. Offers insights into the frequency and extent of commits to remote Git branches, facilitating analysis of development progress and collaboration effectiveness.
