Err no but you don't really need numbers do you? The number of active
developers is not even close to those who were active back in 2005 and
especially the number of users if not really the same. The forums are
not as active as they used to be ( as I see it ). Moreover, having so
many herds with one or two active developers is not a sign of activity
or progress either.
