An anonymous reader writes "When you're browsing GitHub, you often come across new and interesting projects and the people behind them — visiting their profile page shows you plenty of information about their projects. But what the profile doesn't tell you is how popular they, and their projects are as a whole — how known, trusted, and interesting they are.
But how to determine this? Gauging trust and quality is difficult for a computer to do.
GitHub users don't live in vacuums — they are linked to other users through followers and repo watchers, and of course repo forks. This social data can be used to estimate a user's quality and trustworthiness, and also their volume of output.
Git Fight! combines a user's GitHub data into a single score which you can use to compare users."
