The FOSS server fossies.org - also supporting "Matomo" - offers a feature "Source code misspelling reports". Such reports are normally only generated on request, but as Fossies administrator I have just created for testing purposes such a codespell based analysis for the new Matomo release 3.13.4:


Although after a first review some obviously wrong matches ("False Positives" = FPs) are already filtered out (ignored) please inform me if you find more of them so that I can force a new improved check if applicable.

Just for information there are also two supplemental pages showing some used "codespell" configuration details and all obvious False Positives.

If appropriate, additional reports for the current release or also master versions (these in a special "test" folder) could be willingly created.

OT: As Fossies admin I am somewhat annoyed that a single file ("How to install Matomo.html") is located outside of the main subdirectory "matomo", as Linux user that the filename contains spaces and as a general user that the file seems superfluous since already existing within the directory "matomo/misc".

Since I saw the great efforts regarding spelling corrections I just added the "matomo" GitHub branches "master", "3.x-dev" and "4.x-dev" to a special Fossies folder named "/linux/test" that isn't integrated into the Fossies services and should also not be accessible for search engines.

The sources are at least currently cloned half-hourly and the according Fossies codespell reports are visible under

(currently -> https://fossies.org/linux/test/matomo-3.x-dev.fdb685c.200408.tar.gz/codespell.html)

(currently -> https://fossies.org/linux/test/matomo-4.x-dev.2c5c72e.200408.tar.gz/codespell.html)

(currently -> https://fossies.org/linux/test/matomo-master.62121d3.200325.tar.gz/codespell.html)

And with a little bit of luck (since it's a new and not yet well tested feature) one can see future changes regarding code spellings under the new "history" button that links for e.g. to


Maybe this can be a little bit helpful as a supplement (although the correction of spelling errors has probably a low priority).

Hello @jschleus
Thanks for this :+1:
Btw, when you create any PR or issues, would you be able to add the label not-in-changelog?
This would save us some time and hide the PRs/issues from our changelog generator tool. Thanks!

EDIT: you can ignore my comment, just realised it was us creating the PRs :-)
