If only there was a way of analyzing the quality of the repository. Are those 1000s of snippet-size JS libraries and Ruby gems meaningful?

It's interesting that strong static languages have more issues open (top 5) - easier to spot them?

I think module size is a big factor. I would predict that C++, Java and C# tend to be larger, more monolithic projects, whereas JavaScript and Ruby have more broken up module ecosystems. JavaScript especially, with its "modularity shaming"...

Very well-factored C#/F# projects such as EF7 and F# compiler may look "monolithic" due to type safety and packaging.
