Divide by number of people to determine project duration.

Yes, I know that's how it's done. 100 persons theoretically take 1 year to complete 100 person years.
Still... how many developers does ENIGMA have? And how long has it been around?
If we count the time each developer spent with ENIGMA and sum them all, will we get even close to 10 Person Years?

No, 90% of the code is mine. They're basing their calculations on the effort put out by people who get paid by the hour, not who work for beans.

Because of course, the less you pay a coder, the more they do.

That may hold. I was referring to the fact that my incentive behind developing ENIGMA isn't to get paid for the hour, which will happen whether anything gets done or not; the people off whom that calculation is based put in what effort it takes to not get fired/stay on the boss's good side.

Ohloh says PineDL would take 1 person year and cost $70000.
Clearly, the algorithm is not accurate.

Also,

But it seems way off!

The result of the model can seem pretty goofy in some cases. Software cost estimation is tricky business even when all the variables are known (which we certainly don't have). One thing to remember is that COCOMO was created to model large institutional projects, which often don't compare well with distributed open-source projects. Beyond just develoment time, COCOMO is meant to include the design, specifications drafting, reviewing, and management overhead that goes along with producing quality software.

The model seems to be most accurate with mature, large projects. Young projects with little activity are typically very overvalued.
