   To be fair, Emacs is notoriously hard to contribute to, so to have
   new devs/maintainers appear requires substantially larger increase
   of the userbase compared to an increase needed in other
   projects. Still worth a try though.

Notoriously hard?  It is one of the easiest projects, you send a patch, one
of the amazing people who work on Emacs looks over it, and if you have
your papers in order, it is commited or commented on.  That is not
very hard.

Best is to avoid such crazy overblown generalizations...
