I'd prefer that the report plainly states that there are several

Commons Math one, but that those are in limbo because no consensus
can be reached.

More significantly (IMHO) is that this single number is totally
useless (up to misleading) if it purports to represent project
activity.

Better have a histogram of "number of committers that did N commits
in the last 3 months".
