Definitely cool... but the subject is certainly a jump from the data presented.

There's many things which contribute significantly to the difference
in numbers, such as -hackers and -patches which are non-user-related
and have almost no equivalent in the MySQL community.  Similarly,
MySQL has no equivalent to -advocacy, which I would say is primarily
driven by PostgreSQL contributors, not users.

Likewise, it appears there are several lists missing from the MySQL
list.  Regardless, it does present an interesting picture.
