Yeah. Which is really unfortunate because to some extent all
projects ought to be striving to be low activity in the sense of
mature, stable, (nearly) bug-free.

If our metrics are biased towards always committing then we are
encouraging unfettered growth which means we can never have any
sense of complete-ness or done-ness in any domains. It should be
okay to say a sub-domain of activity is done and move on to
improving the wider domain.
