    Michael, please do not use transparent background for graphs. It makes them unreadable for those of us who do CSS replacement.

    Perhaps "WONTFIX" will satisfy your request?

    I always love to read the comments of those who hate on a "bloated" kernel that includes drivers for likely 80-90% of all hardware in the known universe. They often behave quite like anti-vaxxers. Also, regarding systemd, it very much *is* modular, as many of it's components can be installed individually.

    In larger projects such as this, while there is initially a fair amount of low hanging fruit, and new development that many can help with, after some point the code becomes sufficiently stable and complex enough that only those with the time, interest, and (often) employer backing, can meaningfully contribute, and some of the past contributors move on to different projects in their organization.

    I do not think total number of contributors is necessarily a good metric to determine the health of a project (unless the number starts to drop precipitously), but it is certainly an easy one to produce.
    Could be some of those Outreachy diversity pigeons. Fly in, $h!t all over, commit a few token gesture LoC, then fly off to "contribute" elsewhere.

    Well, what sort of cleaning would you like? The great majority of issues are requests for enhancements, not bugs (only 104 bugs on the list). According to git, they are closing/resolving issues at almost the same rate as they are getting new ones.
    So issues on git are not only problems and bugs, but mainly requests for new features, with a few bugs among them.
    Most issues aren't tagged as "bug" are bugs anyway. Reading them is entertaining

    Linux kernel violates all UNIX principles (besides, it's not even UNIX).
    It is a single monolithic repository with 27.8 million lines of code that can not be taken apart.
    The Linux kernel is forcefully pushed to us by multi-billion dollar corporations like Redhat and the likes.
    Devuan should dump this malicious attempt of corporate infiltration into OSS ecosystem and switch to Gnu Hurd instead.

    but first freebsd takes drivers from linux and uses them in their own kernel. thus haiku takes drivers from linux indirectly

    of course, because gnu is not unix
