I'm surprised that the community and devel numbers are so low
considering it is almost 2 years since launch (for a data point, the
nslu2-linux project grew to 9000 members on the community list in two
years after project start, peaked to 12000 after 3 years and still has
10000 after four years).  One needs to wonder why the respectable
announce list numbers haven't been converted into respectable community
and devel list numbers ...

Surely you've sold many more than 5000 devices (supposedly mainly to
developers) - how come all those people are not on the mailing lists?

It would be very interesting to see the graph of mailing list member
numbers over time and whether it has just not grown very much since the
launch or whether it grew significantly and has shrunk since.
