The survey was conducted by Black Duck Software, whose software crawls more than 4,300 open source repositories and tracks 1,500 licenses. Even though it sells software to enterprises, Black Duck (which also owns the Koders.com free search engine for open source software and code) is a viable resource for tracking code usage, said IDC analyst Al Hilwa.
Black Duck intends to provide free access to the data, which it will routinely update. It can be accessed here. The company for some time has offered data on licensing, which is updated daily and can be accessed here.
