Just for information.
I have contacted (as earlier agreed) developers who have not been active for quite a while, with the mail below.
I am every month monitoring the rate of new people entering the project, compared to people who have not added patches for a while, and the relation is slowly improving. Bear in mind it is natural that volunteers come and go, depending on the time and energy they have available so this is not a measure if the project grows but simply a "change rate".

> Sorry for intruding on your mailbox. I am the development mentoring lead in the document foundation (LibreOffice), which means it is my job to find out how to make the community better, especially for new people.
> I noticed it has been a while since you have contributed (I am sorry if I overlooked something) therefore I would like to ask you a couple of questions.
> It is totally free whether or not you want to answer the questions. I might poke you again in a bit just in case, but promise not to nag you beyond that.
> a) Is there a specific reason why you have not contributed in a while?
> b) can you suggest anything we should have or can do better?
> c) Did you feel welcome and helped in the community ?
> d) Is there anything we can do, to motivate you again (remembering it is my job to help people getting started) ?
> THANKS a lot for taking time to answer and thereby help us. I hope to see you contributing again in the future.
