Why did the number of LOC in GHC nearly triple in 2014!?

Dimitri DeFigueiredo
Hello folks,

I was looking at this:

https://www.openhub.net/p/ghc/analyses/latest/languages_summary

And was really surprised by the graph. Is this correct!?
Did the complexity of GHC's codebase significantly increase in 2014?
Can anybody shed a light on why that is?

Cheers,

Dimitri

If I had to guess, I'd say that was likely around when Austin was playing with the way we handle submodules. There was a bunch of churn on that front in 2013-2014 or so.
