It's currently 8% per https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/New_Developers/Quarterly/2017-10#Key_findings And the time series is the third graph under https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/New_Developers/Quarterly/2017-10#Key_findings ...the first two of which are more important and solid. The variance of the retention rate is high, so its downward trend isn't too serious, but it would be nice if we could increase it. Speaking of new developer retention, Brian, would you be willing to mentor Brij Mohan at https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionary:Grease_pit/2017/August#Pronunciation_evaluation_gadget_for_Wiktionary:_GSoC_2017 ? I would prefer that an experienced developer take over because I have little experience with gadget scripting.
