Si Chen from Open Source Strategies talked to a number of mailing list
contributors (which is different than code contributors) a year or two
ago. They are supposed to have a web page about this at
but I am getting a 500 error right now. The rest of their web pages are
working, so they may still be there. There is a contact link on their main
page which you might use to contact them and see if you can get access to
those results.
