What of the velocity of lines of code written over time.

Early on, you might write lots of lines of code. say 1000 lines. push to release.
sum = 1000

But 200 of which is bad. So rewrite those. RELEASE!
sum = 1200

Then you refactor. cutting out 400 lines. Release is now 600 lines. RELEASE!
sum = 1200 + 300 (not 400 as rewrote some multi lines as singular lines) = 1500

Project 2. Very Similar to Project 1. But know you know mistakes. And some extra feature. Same amount of time. 600 lines. RELEASE.
sum= 2100

Year 1. 1500 lines.
Year 2. 600 lines.

Then you build a library of reusable stubs, which you reuse.
Released lines of new code I would say goes down.
Maybe some increases when figuring out a new language.

Oh, but released lines of code would tend to increase. Because that library of support code you use to reduce the amount of new lines you need to write, will increase and bloated to cover the odd and weird corner cases it needs to satisfy.
