I concur with the idea. That the saturation point has to do with overall activity level. When
the level of Contribution dropped after November 2014 technical debt accelerated. Compare
the overall commit / bugzilla resolution levels with number of contributors multiplied by
the average size of the contribution.

An interesting comparison might include counting the the size of contributions of those who
are paid by their day job to work on the project. A count of students and retirees would be
interesting metrics as well.

Strict development comparisons are only fair to a point. For example the forums are hosted
by the ASF and the volunteers and community answer all questions about any part of the OpenOffice
/ ODF ecosystem.

Dave
