Well volunteered.  ;-)

See Porting/ for where the text is generated.

Something like this would seem reasonable (adding .t):

    Perl 5.18.2 represents approximately 5 months of development since
Perl 5.18.1
    and contains approximately 3,100 lines of changes across 73 files from 12
    authors.  Excluding auto-generated files, documentation and
release tools, there were
    approximately N lines of changes to .pm, .t, .c and .h files.
