MarkMail has archives of many of the ASF mailing lists.  The archive  
for httpd, the original project goes back to 1999:


In that almost 10 year period: 247 references of any kind to PMC in  
the dev list.

For CouchDB's 1 years, 79 references in the dev list.

So we have 79/yr for couch and 25/yr for httpd.  that's 3x.

Also, absent from your list of messages is the long thread in user@  

"Current CouchDB state", which has numerous usages, as well as a  
troubling exchange with Jim Jagielski.

I'm very disappointed that we've now degenerated into message counting.
