I am sure you are correct that raw commits have not skyrocketed since
the conversion to git, but you cannot judge community involvement or
openness in raw commits alone. I know for a fact that the conversion
to git has done wonders for killing FUD about the Perl community.

The barrier to entry for hacking on Perl 5 went from an infinite
potential well to a gentle speed bump. (Yes, I just called git a
gentle speed bump, but in a good way.) The effects of this have only
begun to be felt.
