Code-hosting company GitHub doubled its repositories this year, bringing its total number of "repos" to 10 million. The growth was fueled by popular 2013 projects such as the White House's Open Data and Tate Gallery's Metadata open-source applications. "The first million repositories were created in just under four years. ... This last million took just 48 days. In fact, over 5.5 million repositories -- more than half of the repositories on the site -- were created this year alone," GitHub's Brian Doll wrote in a blog post.
