No, I wasn't wondering whether the move to git was worth it. I think that it
was. (Given that we have all the history from perforce)

What I *was* wondering was whether it has changed the activity level in the
core repository. Particularly, whether there was any evidence that the people
who vocally complained that perforce was a big barrier to them hacking on the
core were now hacking on core, given that the barrier has been removed.

There's a lot of noise in the commit rate data, but my current view from it
is that there's no material change in the activity level since the git
