There was a little discussion on about the staggering amount of
support that LibreOffice is seeing. I hunted down some statistics from
various pages because at first I also couldn't believe the numbers:

        According to ohloh (BTW is there a free alternative to that
        service?) it is even more than 400 committers over the last
        year: also reports a staggering amount of commit messages:
        "32812 messages since the first one, 0.84 years ago, for an
        average of 13.39 minutes between messages"

        Their wiki says there are 277 active users (who made changes the
        last 3 months), with a total of 32,311 edits:

        The LibreOffice credits page has even more people listed (611
        committers, 1005 wiki contributors), but read the fine print
        about double counting and also recognizing previous contributors:

        I could not find statistics for their mailinglists:
        But their main development mailinglist is seeing
        between 1200 and 1700 messages a month. gmane might be able to
        give some statistics about the others:
There were some followup questions about statistics of contributors for
translations and documentation. Does anybody have more accurate numbers
on those (or as accurate as these things get, I understand that all
statistics are lies)? Or better estimates of the numbers I found above?
