I'd also like to point out that if the state of the projects has encouraged *new* contributors to OpenStack, then their contributions will likely take a couple to a few months to become visible in a significant way in the statistics. Two to three months to get your first merge is extremely common among the subgroup developers new to OpenStack.

Also note that release and summit months are traditionally less active
(some would say "totally dead"), so comparing April-May to anything else
is likely to not mean much. I'd wait for a complete cycle before
answering this question. Or at the very least compare it to
October-November from the previous cycle.

If we do so for the few projects that existed in October 2014, that
would point to a rather steep increase:

Look at Oct/Nov in:

And compare to April/May in:

Same for Rally:

Only Congress was slightly more active in the first months of Kilo than
in the first months of Liberty.
