But even if there seems to be a downward trend, a lot of projects would be thrilled to have 18 active contributors a month.
Projects of similar size? I doubt it. Size does matter. For a tiny project like zlib 18 active contributors will be somewhat unusual huge number (what all these people can do with such a tiny library?), but for a project of Chromium/Firefox/OpenOffice/LibreOffice size 18 are way, way, way not enough. Heck, Gimp has about half of that and as everyone knows it's woefully understaffed and glacially-moving project!
