I suspect that we need account for fragmentation -- the other chart on r-help participation showed volumes level off. But that simply omitted the rise in r-sig-* postings which were added to later versions of John's presentation / paper.

Similarly, I suspect we also need to chart R-Forge growth in terms of packages (and users).

Good points. Should also be considering Bioconductor as well as R-Forge to address the fragmentation in the packages, I guess.
