I think I can probably answer most of the questions, as we did track those data, but not sure:
much of what was there is a) gone, b) old, really old.

That said, regarding the committers: See,

"Domain Developer," as you know, meant that one had access as a committer globally.

As to general ports, from memory:

1. Windows. > 95%
And then Mac OS X
And then, in the single digits, the rest.
(Linux distros., of course, included OOo and its variants.)

The old spreadsheets from the first few years are probably not quite accurate--they never
were--but suggestive of the breakdown then of "everything else". However, now, things are
quite a lot different, and past data ought not to prescribe present, let alone future behaviour.
