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. - -- Regards, Markos Chandras / Gentoo Linux Developer / Key ID: B4AFF2C2 -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.18 (GNU/Linux) iQIcBAEBCgAGBQJOSBj1AAoJEPqDWhW0r/LCCLgP/jkec/IsYVt1w2HjtoJ9UUw2 uPB36y1OyyRnIUrnRiOe6gmG5fFyUkSPvk//8Ap/p2HZAduwgH6VcPwG0WDrv3Dh Hs9+8hL5nH015qSTUYhdok6BFPWFgb8qiNz4MDIwa1VfRaecfoa3lVd91IROrnlo xRUP8fE61tBJTd1EXrZFE2V9m8fj6ds7X/lfr9I1KBa0VRIMxn4+1vsUiTT/vEkt ZEZLIxdPil9PbewlROEammYgvYr9nsE+FzaXvIU2geN4VYfm0lpKlPYED+k83s+3 wTE5l7QHcifhRlnkx1Jo6E9RO3k2aY9A73JAS5+u3T2L3M/Gvn9BmL3cR4LEPEVN UZYGBWRZGjPdz/Yf62cwWGZBl3VMqYUezS5XVadX5zMKmnTx/dXAzkKneYq7GRU0 OmUjfI2yY5yQbMa2/z8L5T2oo7X4Xk6b485/uUW8aeFcymBybhAvwAo64yiEgBey Qb4F+8nUbUGDSP6exWCV8lwf6lNntXBRsnD0o1ZBi2aV9IDPo25P6Ny2l21uY5FY g+hPpEU3hyGevn5uUi8x8Pkuxr0NmShOFhpPP2Kvc4reTzWm8McLu5DmnkhdYSQg vs1fTKvblntap2A/vB47RHYJJcQ1R/CjfyRNhZroMuAOmDqcwOFZN4Prygr5RB/G eZfpg5l+v1fecjxc4nJP =fKpN -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
