I'm interested to find out if any statistical measures (formal or informal) are used in the measurement of Eclipse project success.

From the Eclipse Project Handbook: Signs of Success...
"Ultimately, everything above is about making it possible for a community to find out about your project and provide opportunity to get involved. Providing that opportunity is one thing, actually attracting a community is another.

You are successful if (not an exclusive list):
- A significant number of bugs raised against your project come from non-committers;
- Non-committers are blogging about your project;
- Articles, presentations, podcasts, webinars etc. are being developed and presented by non-committers;
- You cease to be the center of the universe for your project."

There are no numbers, rates or percentages in the described success criteria in the handbook. Are there any stats from existing mature projects or completed projects in terms of community size / growth rate, and broken down further in terms of the 3 community types (developers, adopters, users) that could potentially be used for benchmarking?

Thanks in advance,
