If your favorite free libre open source project is only available as a tgz or zip (ie umlet) you can now easily turn it into a fully viewable & searchable code repository by using github or google code svn !
You can then use ohloh.net to analyse the code for you !
- sign up for a github or google code svn account
- CREATE a new repo (ie http://github.com/osde8info/UMLet)
- download tgz or zip
- untgz or unzip
- ADD files to repo
- COMMIT files to repo
- (if using github you may also need to 'remote add' and 'push')
- add enlistment to ohloh (ie git://github.com/osde8info/UMLet.git)
