I know the board discourages including the mailing list stats, but they’re not too shabby.
Especially the subscriber count. Worth mentioning email activity even if you skip the numbers.


- dev@arrow.apache.org:  
    - 467 subscribers (up 43 in the last 3 months): 
    - 615 emails sent to list (504 in previous quarter) 
   
 - issues@arrow.apache.org:  
    - 6 subscribers (up 0 in the last 3 months): 
    - 399 emails sent to list (338 in previous quarter)
