Hi there,

A while back I submitted Grok (+ Martian + Grokproject) to Ohloh as the 
'Grok' project. There are some interesting statistics to be found here:


The estimated effort is 3 person years, with an estimated cost of 
$160,000. Though this sounds reasonable, it could be completely off as 
this isn't calculated correctly. For instance, Zope 3, according to 
Oholoh, is 138 million lines of code, almost 50 person-*millennia* in 
the making, costs about 2.7 billion dollars. Take that Microsoft!
